CAMERON, W.Va. (AP) - Cameron is celebrating the 75th anniversary of its historic semicircular pool.

The pool is a 150-foot-wide semicircle with a 75-foot radius. It was built in 1939 as a Public Works Administration project to serve as both a recreational facility and an emergency reservoir for fire protection. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.

WTRF-TV (https://bit.ly/1mss4XO ) reports that residents and city officials gathered at the pool on Sunday to celebrate the anniversary. The celebration included the dedication of a historic marker.

The pool was closed for several years after falling into disrepair. It reopened in 2013 following a restoration project.
