The Birthplace of Forest Conservation in America

October 24 & 25, The Legend of Tommy Hodges outdoor drama

October 24 & 25, 2014

A mystery over time becomes a legend, and a legend grows in the telling . . . It was Halloween night in 1906 when one of the students from the Biltmore Forest School disappeared. His name was Tommy Hodges. The Cradle of Forestry will present this outdoor drama along the paved, one-mile Biltmore Campus Trail. As the audience walks the trail from scene to scene it meets characters from the historic Pink Beds community and hears stories, some based on the diaries of students who attended the Biltmore Forest School from 1903-1907.  Warm clothing, walking shoes and flashlights are recommended.
