Blue Ridge Parkway History Now Online: New Website from University of North Carolina Library and Partners
The history of the Blue Ridge Parkway, America’s most visited National Park System site, is now online.
The new collection, “Driving Through Time: The Digital Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina,” was created through a collaborative project based at the library of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
“Driving Through Time,” available at http://docsouth.unc.edu/blueridgeparkway/, presents photographs, maps, news articles, oral histories and essays documenting development and construction of the parkway’s North Carolina segment.
The site invites users to explore parkway history chronologically, geographically, by topic, and through a collection of interactive map overlays.
