Historic Holiday Lake 4-H Club and W.P.A. Camp Marker, MG-4

The Holiday Lake 4-H Educational Center represents the history of both 1930s land management by New Deal programs and the 4-H organization in Virginia.  Surrounded by the Appomattox-Buckingham State Forest, and adjacent to Holliday Lake State Park, the 1937 rustic-style buildings originally housed Works Progress Administration (W.P.A.) workers who built the State Park and took part in reforestation of the area. The Forest and Camp later became state property. Local interest resulted in the 4-H Club taking over the former W.P.A. Camp, with active camping as early as 1940.  Holiday Lake 4-H Camp is the second oldest 4-H camp in Virginia.
