Eleanor Town Park

A 70th Celebration is being planned for the Town of Eleanor. Being one of the "New Deal Projects" built during the depression years of the 1930's, it was felt the town should celebrate it's beginning.
The first families moved into the project on April 1, 1935.
The town has much history to be proud of and it is hoped that younger generations will continue to celebrate the town's place in American history.
If you would like to work on a committee or help with this celebration, please contact Marlane Carr at 304-586-2409.
