Amazing old Deparment of Interior film on Chewacla park shows Auburn of yesteryear

If we may get our Stefon on, this Department of the Interior film on the creation of Auburn’s Chewacla State Park has it all: advice from Horace Greeley, dismantled mills, reenactments of the Gay 90s, “charming young farmer-ettes,” the hardest exposed rock in the United States, waterfalls, beautiful bridle trails, sunbathing 1930s coeds, and look over there — is it Mick Jagger? No! It’s a self-Pavloviating dog in a pill box hat riding a velocipede and answering a telephone that possibly belongs to the Father of Auburn Football (it’s not his house but that professor looks an awful lot like George Petrie).

Watch it again and again, and be proud.

Thanks to Brian Brown for the tip!
