Celebrating 100 Years
Welcome to the A.T. Vista Newsletter!
This monthly newsletter shares the updates along the way as we prepare for an inaugural program honoring the celebration of the 100th anniversary of Benton MacKaye's 1921 article,
“An Appalachian Trail: A Project in Regional Planning.”
In Benton MacKaye's October 1921 edition of the Journal of the American Institute of Architects article, he provided a suggested location of the Appalachian Trail with a main line from Mt. Washington to Mt. Mitchell, representing an area that contains more than half of the population of the United States. This map above highlights the areas of Benton MacKaye's vision for a series of recreational communities throughout the Appalachian chain of mountains from New England to Georgia to be connected by a walking trail.
