Sharp Top Shelter Gets a Re-Do
THE SOLIDLY BUILT, long-neglected shelter at the top of Sharp Top
Mountain up from the Peaks of Otter
Lodge at Milepost 86 of the Blue Ridge
Parkway has finally gotten some love.
The structure, built in 1858 by the
Otter Peaks Hotel for rustic overnight
lodging for those willing to climb
the mountain, had fallen victim
to decades-worth of weather and
vandalism. To the rescue: the Blue
Ridge Parkway Foundation, as its
part of a matching amount for the
2017 Centennial Challenge program
set up by Congress. BRPF pledged
$56,774 of the needed $113,450 for the
restoration.
Good faith all around: The work
is done, but the matching funds are
still to be raised. To make a donation:
