The American Chestnut display at the Welcome Center. Blight resistant strains of chestnut trees are being developed, and it is hoped that within 5 years a 99% resistant version will be ready for planting. This display describes how valuable the chestnut was to the original settlers of this area. Photo taken on August 4, 2003.
