It makes sense that when your family owned and operated one of North Carolinas most scenic wonders for over 100-years, Chimney Rock Park, that you would be the perfect one to write a book about it.  Former Park Owner, Todd Morse, is responsible for the book, 'For the Love of Chimney Rock: Four Generations of Morse Family Stewardship.' During this Friday Feature from May 25, 2018 - Morse goes over history, the park, and his family's role... all captured in the book.
