North Carolina's Newest State Park

Record #:
Pisgah View State Park is the sixth state park in Western North Carolina. Republican senator Chuck Edwards introduced the bill authorizing its addition. The Cogburn family donated the land which they had originally owned since 1790.. In 1941, Ruby and Chester Cogburn opened the very popular Pisgah View Ranch on the tract. The Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy helped facilitate negotiations between the Cogburn family and the state.
