In order to recognize their contributions and their losses, each site will contain a memorial to the people from that county where the land was acquired for the park, with a plaque listing the surnames of those families. Through educational and cultural displays and demonstrations to depict people’s lifestyles, crafts, music and traditions, each county committee will promote events to reflect the particular culture of the community. Visitors to a site will gain a greater appreciation for the impact the park had on individual lives in general and for that particular community. Altogether, the eight sites will create a better understanding of life in the Blue Ridge Mountains.   Here is a link to the map showing the location of all the chimneys.
