Before the renovations of the mid-80's the Summit House was often vandalized during the off season months. Many items were illegally removed. In response some items were removed for safe keeping by park staff.
At the June 2003 FOMHR board meeting it was agreed that the Friends would attempt to locate any items that were removed from the Summit House. An article was supposed to appear in the newsletter and a page put up at the FOMHR site. Neither happened.
One such item the Friends was trying to recover was an old Franklin stove which once graced the restaurant. It was an item that was removed in the early 1970s by park staff for safekeeping and subsequently disappeared.
If you have any information about this stove or any other item, please
contact me. Confidentially is assured.
