The Library of Congress is seeking memories from Lewis Mountain visitors

The Library of Congress Federal Research Center Division is working with the Shenandoah National Park NPS to tell the story of Lewis Mountain.

The Library of Congress twitter post is asking for pictures and memories from individuals, families and groups who visited and used the facility between 1939 and 1970.

The materials shared will be used to develop an online interactive display to preserve the area’s history.

The Library of Congress calls the Lewis Mountain story an important part of the park’s history that needs to be told and preserved.

Originally the facility was established as a segregated recreational facility until the park was fully integrated in 1950.

You can share any pictures and memories by emailing NPSLewis_FRD@loc.gov.
