Call me a sentimentalist but developing Chimney Rock is WRONG July 18, 2006 2:00 pmPosted by Doug McCaughan in : News, Of Interest
This could be sad (well…unless I win the lottery and could buy an estate up there..nonono!) I was born in North Carolina and have been through much of its great remaining wilderness. As Roosevelt and the Davis’ recognized, some things should be preserved.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) â€” Chimney Rock Park, the popular private park set in the cliffs overlooking Lake Lure in western North Carolina, is being offered for private sale, with an asking price of $55 million, owner Todd Morse said Tuesday.
With its dramatic views, elevator ride to the top of the signature Chimney Rock and sheer rock faces, the park has been a tourist destination since it opened in 1902 after it was first developed by Morseâ€™s great-great uncle Lucius B. Morse.
The parkâ€™s trails and cliffs were a site for filming of the 1992 movie â€œLast of the Mohicans,â€ and it has been featured in numerous other productions.
Maybe I can get the kids to see it before things change. Thank you Michael Silence for the link.trackback
