We bought this poster at a shop on the top of Afton Mountain years ago for our friend R.D. Cave who’s families cabin was near the falls before the park was formed. RD’s father had worked on the building the park and skyline drive and is written about in the book about The Shenandoah National Park. The top of Afton Mountain is now a ghost town?
