The Eno River starts in Orange County, North Carolina, and flows through the town of Hillsborough and then into Durham County. In the 1960s the city of Durham proposed a dam along the river. Saving the Eno River: Margaret Nygard and the Eno River Association tells the story of the people who joined together to protect the Eno River for all of us, and how the Eno River State Park was formed. Margaret Nygard led the fight to save the Eno. Together in 1966 Margaret and a group of community members formed what became the Eno River Association. Working together as a group they made their voices heard by city leaders. How the Eno was saved is an important part of North Carolina’s history.
