Camp Caesar

Located in the rolling hills at the edge of the Monongahela National Forest, (beside Gauley River) Camp Caesar has been a home away from home, for many campers since 1922. In the early 1930’s, the Civilian Conservation Corps constructed the cabins and the original portion of the dining hall. Harley and Maude Chenoweth Burton served, and lived with their family, at the camp from 1931 until 1975. As the WVU Extension Agent, he established 40 4-H clubs in Webster County with approximately 600 members. He was dedicated to the camp and its young people. His grave is on-site and the epitaph reads “a dream you dream is soon wafted away, but a dream you live, lives on and on.” (NRHP pending)
