Sycamore Mess Hall -- Service Project

  • 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • William B. Umstead State Park


Registration is closed
Help us restore Sycamore Mess Hall so it can be open for public use for the first time in almost 30 years. Built by the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) and Works Progress Administration (WPA), The Sycamore Mess Hall first opened to the public in 1937.

The focus of this service day will be interior restoration. We will be painting the mess hall kitchen.

We will have HEAT in the mess hall kitchen for painting.  Don't let the cold weather scare you, we are a GO.

Guarantee you will feel a great sense of satisfaction after what you accomplish on this work day! 

This event is part of the Umstead Coalition's events to celebrate the 80th anniversary of William B. Umstead State Park -- Your Park since 1934!

The Umstead Coalition will provide snacks and water. 

We will have gloves.  Dress appropriate for painting and layer for varied temperatures; no heat in the Mess Hall (except we will have a heater in the kitchen area).
