Hamlin CCC / POW Camp

The Greece Historical Society is offering a free lecture on the Hamlin Civilian Conservation Corps and POW Camp at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 14, at Greece Town Hall, 1 Vince Tofany Blvd.

The discussion will be led by Ed Evans, a retired teacher and historian. Evans and a crew of volunteers have excavated a site in Hamlin that was established as a CCC camp in 1935 and later served as a POW camp until 1946 when the buildings were destroyed.
