Rob Young from Chimney Rock gave the club a “behind the scenes” tour of Chimney Rock Park. The park has been undergoing some incredible upgrades and is almost ready for the public.
Chimney Rock, a 535 million year old towering monolith, is a focal point in our mountains. The views from the chimney can go as far as 75 miles. It is a must see for our area.
The park was purchased by a wealthy individual in the early 1900s for health reasons (the air is good here if you didn’t know). He bought the entire 500 acres for $500! Over the time the park was developed and then held privately for 3 generations. Recently, the state of NC negotiated a purchase and will maintain the park for future generations.
