This exhibit will feature historic photographs of CCC workers and buildings in Missouri. In addition, photographs highlighting the CCC work in Missouri State Parks will also be on display.

The Elizabeth Rozier Gallery is located in the Union Hotel at Jefferson Landing State Historic Site, 101 Jefferson, Jefferson City. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
