Moving Day in the Mountains

Record #:
With the development of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park the government was left with a dilemma of displacing people from their homesteads. Some residents left willingly but others less inclined to leave were granted a leasing option. Leases were short term but renewable and extended to the \"lifetime of persons now living within the park area.\"
