This presentation will give a history of the park by using local newspaper articles that were saved by the past park Superintendents. These articles, clipped and saved from 1934 to 1984, were scanned and cataloged by volunteer Phillip Whiteman a few years ago. Mr. Whiteman will speak on some of the interesting aspects of the park's history based on his study of these articles. Do you know the first female ranger to work at the park? Do you know when the mountain top parking lot and road were put in? Do you know what was charged for driving on the mountain top road after it opened? Items like this and more will be discussed and photos shown.
