A Shelter for the Soul

Woven through scenic middle Tennessee woodlands, streams, and lakes, lies a peaceful park that nurtures the body, mind, and spirit of nearly a million people every year. The history of Montgomery Bell State Park is full of surprises…a story of which few people are aware. Wild Side Guide Janet Ivey shares some of the story of how a once a barren wasteland…unwanted and seemingly useless…was transformed by some visionary people and hard working members of the Civilian Conservation Corps into a beautiful “Shelter for the Soul.”
