Cradle of Forestry in America
Cradle of Forestry in America Review
The home of the first forestry school in the United States is on 6,500 acres in the Pisgah National Forest. The school, started in 1898 by Carl Schenck, trained some 300 foresters. Here you can visit the school's original log buildings, a restored 1915 steam locomotive, a 1-mi interpretive trail, and a visitor center with many hands-on exhibits of interest to kids and adults. The road from Brevard to the Cradle of Forestry, a scenic byway, continues on to connect with the Blue Ridge Parkway near Mt. Pisgah.
