Click for Clingmans Dome Observation Tower before July 5, 2016 to help the Great Smoky Mountains National Park win a $250,000 grant for desperately needed repairs! The National Trust for Historic Preservation has joined forces with the National Geographic Society to offer a total of $2 million in grant money to preserve five historic sites within America’s National Park System.
Clingmans Dome Observation Tower is the third highest peak in the eastern United States at 6,643 feet above sea level. On clear days the view extends over 100 miles. Clingmans Dome is subject to year-round weather extremes and that has taken its toll on the historic tower. Completed in 1959 the Clingmans Dome Oberservation Tower has had a long and productive life but it’s time for some overdue maintenance and you can help with just a click!
