Smokies officials offer reward for stolen window

MARYVILLE, Tenn. — Great Smoky Mountains National Park officials are offering a reward for information on the theft of a historic Elkmont window.

The Daily Times reports the antique window was discovered missing from a cabin in the Elkmont Historic District in January.

Park officials are offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individuals responsible for the theft. The missing window was from the former summer home of a Knoxville glass maker.

The window's intricate design included 34 individual glass panes, each measuring 4 inches by 4 inches.

"This is a very sad case of vandalism and theft," said Chief Ranger Clay Jordan. "The people who did this have stolen a piece of our shared history that can never be replicated."

It is unlawful to disturb or deface historic resources within the park. Perpetrators may be sentenced up to six months in jail and fined as much as $5,000.
