Cradle of the Forestry Recounts the Legend of Tommy Hodges, Oct. 23

PISGAH FOREST,NC – 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, the fictitious Tommy Hodges, disappeared. The Cradle of Forestry will present this outdoor drama about the first forestry school in America on Friday, October 22 and Saturday, October 23. This is a rain or shine event!

The event will take place along the paved Biltmore Campus Trail and includes characters and stories based on the diaries of students who attended the historic school from 1903-1907. The audience will walk one mile along the trail to see the entire play, so audience members are asked to dress warm, wear walking shoes and bring a flashlight.

Admission for this event is $6.00 for adults 16 years of age and older and $3.00 for youth under 15 years of age, and America the Beautiful and Golden Age passport holders and includes hot cider and cookies.
