Thursday 20 October, National parks historian Timothy Davis will hold a lecture about park roads at the Amsterdam Academy.
Millions of visitors tour America’s national parks. While park roads determine what most visitors see and how they see it, however, few pause to consider when, why, or how the roads they travel on were built. National parks historian Timothy Davis highlights the unique qualities of park roads, details the factors influencing their design and development, and examines their role in shaping the national park experience.
