Overview

As the smallest campground in Shenandoah, Lewis Mountain offers quiet campsites, cozy cabins and a camp store. But did you know Lewis Mountain was once a segregated campground in accordance with Jim Crow laws in Virginia? Join Ranger Claire Comer to hear the complex stories of Lewis Mountain and the desegregation of Shenandoah National Park. Claire will share with us what she has learned about Lewis Mountain while working as an Interpretive Specialist for the National Park Service for the past twenty years, including developing an exhibit for the Big Meadows Visitors Center and more recent efforts to tell this important story. This is an ONLINE Meeting on the Zoom platform. Zoom details are not published on this site for security. Thanks for understanding.
