Shenandoah National Park
Skyline Drive National Historic Landmark District at Shenandoah National Park. Located in Virginia, just 75 miles from DC, the 200,000-acre National Park encompasses parts of eight counties. Skyland Stable, constructed in 1939, is a rustic wooden structure within the Skyland Resort. Skyland Stable is made up of three historic structures arranged in a U-shaped configuration with individual horse stalls opening onto a small corral enclosed by a split-rail fence.
The first-ever HOPE Crew project rehabilitated the exterior of the Skyland Stables, in Shenandoah National Park. Corpsmembers from the Citizens Conservation Corps of West Virginia, under the direction of crafts expert David Logan spent 10 weeks rehabilitating the exterior of the historic stables, and constructed new perimeter fencing. This project was funded by the park concessionaire, Delaware North Companies.
“I think it's important to save old buildings. The older something is, the more value it has, and that brings more people to it.”Elijah, corpsmember
