About the event

The Beltrami County Historical Society proudly announces a special viewing of the documentary "Built to Last: the Legacy of the CCC in Minnesota" on Thursday, August 22 at noon. This insightful film explores the enduring impact of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) on the state's landscape and communities.

Amidst the depths of the Great Depression, the CCC emerged as a beacon of hope, offering employment to young men and revitalizing the nation's natural resources. Tasked with projects ranging from reforestation to park development, these dedicated workers left an indelible mark on Minnesota, transforming its wilderness into cherished public spaces.

Join us for a captivating journey through history as we delve into the remarkable achievements of the CCC in Minnesota. Discover how Camp Rabideau, located right here in Beltrami County, played a pivotal role in this transformative program. The runtime of the documentary is approximately 30 minutes.

Admission to the documentary screening is FREE! Don't miss this chance to connect with history and celebrate the remarkable achievements of the CCC in shaping our beloved state.

This screening is part of the "New Deal in Northwester Minnesota" exhibit hosted by the museums of Historic Northwest Minnesota.  Join Beltrami County Historical Society and other participating museums for a look into New Deal projects that shape our landscape and play roles in our communities yet today.
