Great Smoky Mountains National Park turns 75

Clay Owen

The 75th anniversary of the opening of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is soon approaching. The most-visited park in the entire National Park system, the GSMNP is celebrating in the coming year with a series of events featuring Dolly Parton as the park's official Ambassador.

Scott Barker has an excellent piece in today's Knoxville News Sentinel surveying many aspects of the Park.

Dolly Parton may soon be getting a promotion from Park Ambassador to President of the Appalachian States.

I keep wondering how different things would be if, when setting up the Park, the Feds had included Gatlinburg.
