PLEASE show your support for NC State Parks! The Honorable Governor Pat McCrory will be at the William B. Umstead State Park Visitor Center to commemorate the 100th anniversary of NC State Parks. The Umstead Coalition will be serving cakes to honor the NC State Parks 100th year anniversary and William B. Umstead State Park’s 80th Anniversary. The refreshments will be served after a short program which includes the Governor’s Proclamation.
On March 3, 1915, the General Assembly passed a bill establishing Mount Mitchell as North Carolina’s first state park. To commemorate the 100th anniversary of this event, the General Assembly is also planning to pass a resolution March 3, 2015. In 2016 the first land purchases were made for Mount Mitchell State Park.
Arrive early to ensure parking.
Please try to attend. We’d like a good turnout to show the depth and breath of support for William B. Umstead State Park and the NC State Park system!!
