Cradle of Forestry in America, Pisgah National Forest

The Cradle of Forestry is itself cradled in a beautiful high valley crisscrossed by streams. Historic buildings from the school of forestry's early days and an antique logging locomotive are main attractions, along with the new Forest Discovery Center, an interpretive museum that tells the history of the school and of forestry in the United States. Craftspeople give demonstrations at indoor and outdoor exhibit areas on most weekends.
