Carvers Creek State Park has a ‘Blast from the Past’

cacr cent 2.jpgThe theme for Carvers Creek State Park’s 2016 Centennial event was “Blast from the Past.” That’s fitting since James Stillman Rockefeller, who built Long Valley Farm that makes up much of the park, lived to be 102 years old. Rockefeller bequeathed the Cumberland County farm to The Nature Conservancy, which in turn, gave it to the state parks system as a part of its newest state park. Tours of Rockefeller’s rustic country estate were a popular part of the day’s agenda along with a hayride, bluegrass music, visits with farm animals, crafts and fishing on the farm’s pond. Here is a photo gallery of the event; click any photo to begin.
