North Carolina State Parks Centennial: Mount Jefferson State Natural Area

Efforts began in 1941 to make Mount Jefferson a state park. Eventually, local citizens obtained a 300-acre donation and succeeded in raising funds to buy an additional 164 acres. Mount Jefferson became first a state park in 1951 and later designated as a North Carolina State Natural Area.
