This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut Map of Morrow Mountain State Park in Stanly County, North Carolina with the following interesting stats carved into it:
- The park was established in 1939 and covers 4,742 acres.
- The summit of Morrow Mountain is one of the largest pre-historic quarries in North Carolina and was mined for metamorphosed rhyodacite which was used by Natives to create projectile points, knives and scrapers.
- Of the four major peaks in the park - Morrow, Sugarloaf, Hattaway and Fall - Morrow Mountain is the highest at an elevation of 936 feet.
Interesting factoid: A reconstruction of the historic Kron House is on the site at the foot of Fall Mountain. The house was built by a Scottish preacher, William McGregor, who sold it to Dr. Francis Kron on November 2, 1839. Dr. Kron and his family lived here for the remainder of their lives, building their small farm into a sizable tract at one time containing well over 6,000 acres. Dr. Kron was born in Prussia and immigrated to America in 1823. He was one of the Southern Piedmont's most famous doctors. Kron was known for traveling for days at a time, making house calls to those bitterly sick. Dr. Kron practiced medicine until after the age of 80. A noted horticulturist, he was also actively involved in education. A Japanese Chestnut tree (Castanea crenata) planted by Kron still thrives and is listed in North Carolina's Champion Big Tree Database. (Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design).
