Cuyahoga Valley National Park AAEF

This project reveals untold stories and strengthens a partnership with one of only four African-American owned and operated residential camps in the United States. The Phillis Wheatley Association established Camp Mueller in the Cuyahoga Valley in the 1930s, decades before Cuyahoga Valley National Park was established in 1974. Through this African American Experience Fund project, the park collected oral histories with camp participants, created an audio-visual segment based on the oral histories, developed a digital database to inform future park interpretation, and built a base for future program collaboration.
