Appalachian Trail Museum Exhibit Opening
- Dates: October 16, 2021
- Location: Appalachian Trail Museum
- Time: 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM
The Appalachian Trail Museum invites the public to attend a special exhibit opening -- Celebrating a Century of the A.T. Vision: Benton MacKaye & Sky Parlor. The exhibit tells the story of this remarkable conservationist, regional planner, and wilderness preservationist, who first envisioned and then proposed a long-distance trail following the Appalachian Mountain range that would be accessible to the country's heavily-populated East Coast.
The exhibit opening will be held on the grounds of the museum and will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony and several tasks about Benton MacKaye and the special collection of furniture, artifacts, and books that comprised his study, Sky Parlor. Many of these items will be on display to the public for the first time.
The grand opening celebration will be held in conjunction with Pine Grove Furnace State Park's Fall Furnace Fest.
