‘Modernist Tides: NPS and Mission 66 development on the Outer Banks’ presentation set for March 31

Join the National Park Service on Friday, March 31 from 11 a.m. to noon, at the Kill Devil Hills Library Meeting Room or online as Ranger George Jaramillo, historical architect, will present “Modernist Tides: NPS and Mission 66 development on the Outer Banks.”

The National Park Service’s Mission 66 program attempted to modernize the service by introducing new visitor facilities, recreational structures, trails and fixtures that we come to expect from the NPS today.
