Map it for me

The Civilian Conservation Corps or CCC Camp at the College of William and Mary during the Great Depression was located on the present site of Yates Hall on Yates Drive, across from William and Mary Hall.

1933--temporary camp behind Cary Field with a large mess hall, kitchen, five barracks, recreation building, shower and wash house, a garage, and an administration building. Camp laid out in a quadrangle, with mess hall at one end, administration building at other end, and barracks along sides.

Today (2010), small brick building remain on the side of the Yates parking lot are left-overs from the CCC camp.
