In 1902, Dr. Lucius Morse had a vision for a park that was accessible to all.  He believed everyone should have the opportunity to behold the breathtaking views of the Hickory Nut Gorge.  Watch his dream become reality as we journey through the history of a family business that eventually becomes a jewel of the North Carolina State Park system.
