BLOWING ROCK, NORTH CAROLINA PROPERTY EST. 1891 • NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES Opened in 1891, the Green Park Inn boasts a blend of turn-of-the-century style and genteel hospitality. Built by three local businessmen, including Civil War veteran Maj. G.W.F. Harper, this Grand Dame of the High South is almost entirely constructed of American Chestnut, which is now virtually extinct. Having hosted such esteemed guests as John D. Rockefeller, Herbert Hoover, Annie Oakley, Margaret Mitchell, and Eleanor Roosevelt, the hotel draws visitors back year after year because of its mountain southern charm, its focus on customer service, and its exceptionally warm hospitality.
