A Mountain Preserved

Record #:
Crowders Mountain State Park in Gaston County is an example of what concerned citizens can do when a natural resource is threatened. There was a possibility in the 1970s that the 1,625-foot Crowders Mountain would be strip-mined. Local citizens responded to the threat by convincing the state to accept the peak as a state park. Funds were approved, and in October 1974, the park became a reality.
