One of the Florida state parks (which was CCC built) has a really nice CCC museum and annual reunion in Sebring, FL They have a book with every site in the states listed - it is pretty interesting. The building reminds me a great deal of Camp Splinter - guess the plans were pretty much the same all over the country. This may be old information for you but thought I would pass it along just in case. I don't know that they would have any information specific to the two sites in Nicholas County but it can't hurt to ask. I know they have a list of CCC members and they may be able to tell you who if any of them work in WV.

They can be contacted through the state park:
Highlands Hammock State Park
5931 Hammock Road
Sebring, FL 33872
863-386-6094
Hope this helps with the search for CCC info.

A correction for you. Just a minor detail Woodbine is also north of Richwood.
