Hocking Hills State Park: A Look at State Park Development

by Rizzuto, Carolyn

Abstract (Summary)
The movements and perceptions sweeping across the nation during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries helped to facilitate the development of state parks in the U.S. The factors which enabled Hocking Hills State Park in Southeast Ohio to be created and become a major tourist attraction in the 1920s and 1930s are reflective of these national trends. The Hocking Hills Story casts light on the nation’s legacy of parks in general and the state parks movement in particular.
