Title Note Side View

Description Photograph shows a side view of the Brinegar Cabin, located near mile post 238.5 in section 2C of the Blue Ridge Parkway, after restoration in 1975. Taken by F. A. Ketterson, Jr. on August 22, 1975.
Commentary This photograph clearly illustrates the changes to Brinegar Cabin following the restoration. First, the woodwork in the front of the cabin is much more extensive. Moreover, windows were installed and the walkway was created by the NPS. One must also notice all shrubbery directly around or in front of the cabin is removed. All in all, the cabin and its surroundings simply look more manicured.
