Interior Vogel State Park CCC Museum

CCC Mannequin

Dressed in the blue denim work uniform of the CCCs. Note the Canteen on his belt. While working we carried this Canteen full of water as well as a mess tin to eat lunch out in the field.

Located near Blairsville, Georgia in the North Georgia Mountains.  Vogel was built by the CCC. We have an annual reunion of the "Boys". The next one will be held on May 8, 1999. Anyone is welcome. We have representation from GA, NC, TN, FL. It is a small gathering of about 50 men and their wives or girl friends and families. We lose a few each year and then a few find us for the first time. It is great fun to hear their stories. We have a small museum located on the park. There are tools, uniforms, photographs and stories. It is very well received by all ages.
