The Beauty Of This Historic State Park In Virginia Has Stood The Test Of Time

Virginia’s state parks are undoubtedly some of the most precious and beloved land in the state. We are forever grateful for the ability to enjoy them, knowing they are protected and well preserved. In fact, even the oldest state parks in the country retain the beauty that they’ve had for decades. One such example is Hungry Mother State Park in Marion, Virginia. The following photographs show what the park looked like nearly 80 years ago, when it was being shaped into the natural space we hold so dear today.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
