In 1907, a record, 1,004,756 immigrants passed through the doors. Ellis Island was also known as ''The Island of Tears'' or ''Heartbreak Island'' because of the 2% who were not admitted after the long transatlantic voyage.

Benjamin Franklin believed in bettering the world around him. Never patenting or receiving financial reward, Franklin believed that his inventions and improvements were meant only to benefit society. Beginning with the invention of swim flippers at the age of 14, he went on to invent the glass armonica, the Franklin stove, and the bifocals. He also made useful improvements to such things as street lamps and the urinary catheter. Arguably, his most important invention was the lightning rod. Since first proposing the use of rods to draw electrical fire from the clouds in 1750, his invention has saved millions of structures from fire. This hiking medallion measures 1 3/4H X 1 1/2W.

New River Gorge National River Hiking Stick Medallion

New River Gorge National River Hiking Stick Medallion

$5.95
View Product


Despite its name, New River Gorge National River is more than just a waterway. The rich natural resources in the Gorge, such as coal, put the region on the industrial map. With the advent of railway access in 1873, these natural resources became accessible to industries outside the Gorge, thus spawning boomtowns in the area. After flourishing for a time, these communities eventually declined, and today empty buildings and towns stand as silent testimonials to the diverse history and culture of the region. Perhaps this medallion will remind you that the hiking trails near the New River are not the only places to explore. Fasten it to your hiking stick and then set your feet on the roads of old towns and communities that offer valuable glimpses into the culture and history of this region.Product DetailsDimensions: 1 1/2'' W x 1 3/4'' HIncludes 3 nailsDesigned and finished in the USA
