Part of the story of what North Carolina’s State Park System has become is how it began. Details of that story include individuals such as Elisha Mitchell, who proved in 1882 the mountain later named Mount Mitchell was the highest in the United States; Governor Lock Craig, instrumental in the establishment of the State Park in 1915; Jerome B. Freedman and Lucius Morse, who dedicated Chimney Rock in 1916.
