Over 100 people spent an enlightening experience yesterday during the dedicatory program for Boulder Field as a national landmark at the Big Boulder Ski Area.

James Walker, chairman of the Carbon County Board of Commissioner, and Agnes McCartney, executive of the Carbon County Planning Commission, addressed the assemblage, stressing the “great strides” made in promoting the county and its sites in the past decade, adding the county “has the highest tourist potential of any county in the state.”

Dr. William Sevon of the Pennsylvania Geological Survey was the main speaker, speaking of Boulder Field’s “unique size and extreme flatness,” saying it was inevitable that the site be declared a national landmark.
