PARI: From ‘Spy Base’ to Education Center

The Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute had its beginnings as a NASA, then Department of Defense federally-owned property. Although some parts of the past remain shrouded in mystery, the evolution of this unique facility into a non-profit science education center is nonetheless rich and fascinating. Learn more about the history of PARI from Brad McCall, head of security and facilities director at PARI, during this fact-filled presentation.

All Things Appalachia is a monthly program series at the Transylvania County Library exploring the people, natural world, culture, and history of the southern Appalachian region.  Presenters include experts in the fields of history, ecology, outdoor recreation, and more.   The programs are on the first Thursday evening of most months at 6:30 pm in the Rogow Room.  Each program lasts approximately one hour. These free programs are supported by the Friends of the Library
