The Blue Ridge Parkway and a Mousetrap

Record #:
The Blue Ridge Parkway was constructed during the middle 20th century to connect the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina. Many homesteads were relocated due to eminent domain and the process of roadway construction. Many left behind belongings and furniture now considered folk art. These pieces of folk art can be seen on display in Asheville at the Asheville History Center as part of the Blue Ridge Parkway Exhibit.
