Don’t Cut Bluff: Exhibit Honors Campaign to Save Bluff Mountain

Record #:
Students at Mars Hill University’s Liston B. Ramsey Center for Regional Studies created a new exhibit titled, The Fight for Bluff: A Community’s Effort to Preserve Its Mountain. The display examines public outcry following a proposal in 1996 to clear-cut Bluff Mountain, Madison County’s highest peak. The students’ research tracked down documents and photos from activists, and how communities organized to save their mountain from destruction.
