The Joyce Kilmer Forest

Record #:
In 1936 a section of forest fourteen miles from Robbinsville was dedicated the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest. The Graham County stand of virgin timber was highly prized for its beauty and serenity. The dedication was sponsored by the Bozeman Bugler post of the veterans of Foreign Wars because of Kilmer's service in World War I where he died in France at the Battle of the Wood of Burned Bridge.
