The surprising secret of Chester State Park

-A A +A
By Brian Garner

Visitors to Chester State Park recently were treated to some early park history as part of the local programming for the travelling Smithsonian “The Way We Worked” exhibition.

In the setting of Shelter 2 outdoors, Park Manager David Baker gave a talk on the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) companies that built Chester State Park and many other state parks throughout South Carolina. There were 16 parks in the state built by the CCC. The CCC did not build the other Chester County state park, Landsford Canal State Park, Baker said.
