Camille Resource Center

Through the use of documentaries, listening stations with interviews from survivors, and displays showing the areas impacted and stories of heroism and survival the story of that storm's effect on the County is captured. The Center's database includes hundred of photographs, videos, newspaper articles, and publications related to the storm and its impact on Nelson County.  All are available for use by the public.
