Shenandoah National Park

family of Virginia owned "Bird's Nest." Harry Flood Byrd, Sr., who was both Governor and a U.S. Senator, honeymooned here and was instrumental in the establishment of the park.
The popularity of Skyland Resort set the stage for it to become the centerpiece of Shenandoah National Park. Pollock, Byrd, and several other Skyland investors worked tirelessly to bring about the establishment of a national park in their beloved Blue Ridge Mountains.
