Pennies for the Park Exhibit: The Grassroots Campaign to Establish the Great Smoky Mountains National Park

In conjunction with the year-long celebration of the 75th anniversary of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the East Tennessee Historical Society will be presenting Pennies for the Park Exhibit: The Grassroots Campaign to Establish the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Through compelling artifacts, graphics, and audio-visual programs, the Pennies for the Park Exhibit will highlight how the efforts of regional civic leaders and businessmen, coupled with a growing, mobile middle class, led to the establishment of Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The exhibit opens up on April 20 and will be at the East Tennessee Historical Society through July 5, 2009.

The East Tennessee History Center is located at 601 South Gay Street in Knoxville and is open Monday through Friday 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM; Saturday 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM; Sunday 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

Admission is $5.00 for adults; $4 for seniors; and free for children under 16 and accompanied with an adult; ETHS members free. For more information visit www.east-tennessee-history.org/ or call 865-215-8830.
