It's hallowed ground...so you want to put in a
tourist center? That just seems wrong to me.

There is a historical building made from stone that sits on the property. This building dates to the late 1800's, early 1900's is what is going to be used for the interpreter center. All other modern structures is what is going to be removed. Nothing is being built in other words.

10,000 visitors since 2006. Pretty good dream. If we don't preserve it now, someone will put a housing development on top of it.

It's interesting to note that Wallis Simpson, the future Duchess of Windsor, was born in 1896 on the grounds of the Monterey Country Club where much of the Battle of Monterey Gap occured. She is best remembered as the reason Edward VIII of Britain abdicated the throne in 1936 for "the woman I love."

You want big words or little ones?

Once you get the "supposed" tourists here, what else does BRS have to offer? The Blue Ridge Mini-Mart? Kings Pizza? The Hilltop (oops rotting away), Mountain Shadows (oops for Sale), Fort Ritchie (nope rotting away). Are you tracking yet?

Heck, based on what the libs and the NAALCP say, blacks are in worse shape now than they were in 1850.
