A Little History: Or How the Smoky Mountains
Became a National Park

Cost and Value

All told, the acquisition of lands needed for the Park totaled over $12 million. By today's standards, the market value is immeasurable. However, the value then or today can't be compared to what has been created and preserved in the form of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The diversity plants (more than 1,500 species), wildlife, recreation opportunities (800 miles of hiking and horse trails), trout streams, the blend of beautiful valleys such as Cades Cove and high peaks such as Mt. LeConte. If you have seen the Smokies in Autumn's splendor, or Spring's renewal, or even the breathtaking mountain vistas of winter, you know there is no way we can place a monetary value on the Park's lands. In hindsight, business interests have to be pleased. The area gets 10 million visitors annually and revenues are such that Tennessee doesn't have an income tax, due in large part to the popularity of the Smokies area.
