Jim Foster of the Keystone Trails Association in PA (who is also MCM’s Facebook Administrator), recently mentioned to be that an episode of the Green Tunnel reviewed the history of Center Point Knob. The Green Tunnel is a podcast about the history of the Appalachian Trail. Center Knob, located south of Boiling Springs, PA, is on a section of the Appalachian Trail maintained by MCM. In the 1930s through the 1950s, this location was considered the center point of the A.T. In 1935, the MCM installed a bronze plaque on a boulder on that rise, commemorating the midpoint of the new AT and naming it Center Point Knob. Sometime in the mid 1940s, the plaque was stolen. The story of its loss, and its recovery many years later, is discussed in this podcast through an interview with a local resident who was directly involved in its discovery. If you have an interest in MCM history, you may enjoy listening to the podcast, which can be found at this link: Iconic Locations: Center Point Knob | The Green Tunnel (r2studios.org),
A.T. hikers also may enjoy other episodes of the Green Tunnel (such as the one about Maryland’s Washington Monument). To see a list of them, go to this link: Episodes | The Green Tunnel (r2studios.org).
