Take This 2-Mile Night Hike At Carvers Creek State Park In North Carolina For A Fall Adventure Like No Other
One of North Carolina’s newest state parks was once the home to James Stillman Rockefeller, a member of the prestigious Rockefeller family in America. Rockefeller was an olympic gold medalist in rowing and would eventually become president of what is now Citicorp.
Visitors to Carvers Creek State Park in Spring Lake can visit the Long Valley Farm, the winter estate of James S. Rockefeller (who was the great-nephew of John D. Rockefeller, of Standard Oil). In addition to the farm house and a historic pond, the state park also boasts a network of trails to explore the 4,530 acres that make up the park.
