Cumberland Gap National Historical Park was established on June 11, 1940 but preserves an area of the country that has been integral to the survival of many for centuries before the United States was even considered. The Gap is actually a large natural break in the otherwise formidable Appalachian Mountain range. Its relatively easy to traverse landscape made it ideal as a passageway from one side of the mountain range to the other for countless animals as well as Native Americans long before European settlers started to use it to settle further west.

Buyer’s have the choice of a bag of 100 circulation quality quarters struck at either the US Mint’s facility in Denver or the US Mint’s facility in Philadelphia.
