The Dismal

Record #:
Once covering 1.4 million acres, the Great Dismal Swamp has been reduced to 210,000 acres over the last 200 years. Eroding water tables, 200 years of logging, especially of the Atlantic white cedar, and an elaborate network of ditches cut through the swamp have all contributed to the reduction of this mysterious, dank, and nearly impenetrable area. Yet, the swamp stubbornly clings to survival.
