“There are a lot of upsides to being part of the national park service,” said McKinney. “ ... but they have criteria for traffic and land use.
“How they will interpret what we do is uncertain,” McKinney added.
But, he’s ready for the challenge.
“My goal is to have Mill Springs positioned to be included within the national park system and my efforts are going to be tailored to meeting that goal,” McKinney said. “And in the meantime, we have to expand our membership base and bring more tourist dollars into Pulaski and Wayne counties.”
An introduction to McKinney, Mill Springs Battlefield Association’s newest executive director, and his personal ties to the battle, can be found elsewhere in this edition of the Commonwealth Journal.
