Images of America – Blowing Rock, NC

– Donna Akers Warmuth

The beautiful and mountainous area of Blowing Rock, North Carolina, has a rich history dating back to the days when the Native Americans passed through on the Nickajack Trail, which led into Tennessee.

Post Cards of Blowing Rock NC

Post Cards of Historic Blowing Rock

– Blowing Rock Historical Society

The desire for clean air, cool breezes, and unparalleled vistas brought visitors to Blowing Rock from surrounding states and the cities of the Carolinas, as well as Florida and the Deep South. Seasonal homeowners returned year after year to entertain guests and share the glories of “The Crown of the Blue Ridge.” This volume tells of the special village called “Green Park,” separated from the village of Blowing Rock until they were joined together in 1927 by annexation. It shows the tourist industry in attractions that were available to visitors and celebrates some homes that were important enough to have post cards made of them. A furtherance of the mission of chronicling Blowing Rock’s history is in the second volume.
