Abstract:
In this third of a series of articles on North Carolina's state parks, Constantino discusses the “hidden” state parks. They are the newest parks in the system and are little known outside their areas because they are either totally undeveloped or have a minimum of interim development for public use. The parks are Crowder's Mountain, Raven Rock, Eno River, Medoc Mountain, Merchant's Millpond, Dismal Swamp, Goose Creek, and the Theodore Roosevelt Natural Area.

The rising costs of maintaining the airport have caused this to happen, but any development may mean the end of the wooded trails around Lake Crabtree County Park. Citizens oppose any move to remove the trails and have signed petitions that seek community involvement in the decision.

Abstract:
A project begun in Japan in the aftermath of WWII has become an international endeavor, with 180,000 peace poles erected in 180 countries. As for the profiled pole, Peace Pole Number 1 in Rowan County, it came to represent the international pursuit of war’s cessation on a small scale.
