Interview with Hobart Akin, TN State Parks Cultural Resources

Tennessee State Parks have a noteworthy array of historic and cultural features.  From pre  history, exhibited in world class archeological sites, all the way to modern history with areas which tell the story of our development as a state and nation.  And, of course, the Parks system itself is a proper subject of history study.

Our guest today,  Hobart Akin, is the man charged with shepherding these resources  within the park system.  Taking care to ensure that they are preserved and exhibited in the best possible fashion.

I think you will observe, as I did, that Hobart has a remarkable breath of knowledge about history and about our Park System.   The parks are in good hands indeed.
