Elkmont a national park service community in limbo : conservation versus preservation /

by 1978- Garlington, Ethiel Benjamin

Abstract (Summary)
Elkmont, located within the Great Smoky National Park, has a social history dating back to the mid nineteenth century and buildings that represent the evolution of the community. The National Park Service (NPS), the federal government’s protector of the natural and built resources, struggles to maintain an appropriate balance between conservation and preservation. This thesis considers Elkmont as an example of the NPS struggle and proposes solutions for the future of the Elkmont National Register Historic District.
