(1826-1906)

Born and raised in Marion Center, Park is recognized as one of the most significant American folk painters. His realistic depictions of rural life, most notably "The Flax Scutching Bee" (1847), provide invaluable documentation of 19th century frontier traditions in western Pennsylvania With his logging illustrations, Park also afforded historians a clear understanding of the early development of the lumber industry.
