Herbert Hoover's Hideaway
Herbert Hoover's Hideaway
Code: HHH
Price: $16.95
"This enjoyable book traces the site selection and construction of President Herbert Hoover's summer retreat in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Nestled along the headwaters of the Rapidan River, the "Summer White House" was a respite from the pressures of the nation's highest office. Here President Hoover renewed his strength, conducted the affairs of State, and personally established programs to benefit the people residing in the vicinity. When he left office, he turned over his beloved Rapidan Camp to Shenandoah National Park, a gift to the American People.

This new edition features an additional epilogue section revealing the story of Rapidan Camp in its years as a retreat for Washington's elite and its recent restoration. Updated by the park's cultural resource specialist and put in the format of the Shenandoah National Park Cultural History Series.
