Event Details

12:00 p.m. (noon) • The Library at Oxmoor Farm

By Caroline Reubens and Elizabeth Barrett

In 2014 Appalshop Archive preserved a donated 16mm silent b/w film documenting the CCC camp in Pine Mountain State Park near the coal mining community of Pineville, KY.  Made in 1938 by then-Park superintendent and CCC supervisor Carl Zody, the film shows Camp SP-10 workers mixing and laying concrete for roads, operating heavy machinery and tools, using explosives to loosen rock, cutting native sandstone, and laying stone in construction of a bridge.

The film also documents the officers, foremen, and enrollees at the camp’s barracks.  In addition to its standing as the only-known moving image record of Camp SP-10 activity in Pineville, the film is unique among moving image documents of the CCC because it is raw footage shot by a Parks employee, whereas most surviving film documentation of the Corps was produced by federal agencies intending to promote the program to the public.

The silent film will be shown with contextual narration provided by Appalshop Archive.

Free for members, $10 for non-members.  Reservations are required.  Please use EventBrite below to make your reservations, or call The Filson at 502-635-5083.
