According to the Blue Ridge Parkway brochure, the "Moses H. Cone Memorial Park, on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Blowing Rock, preserves the country estate of Moses Cone, a prosperous textile entrepreneur, conservationist and philanthropist of the Gilded Age. In 1901, Cone built Flat Top Manor, the gleaming white 20-room mansion in the grand Colonial Revival style." We arrived on a beautiful day...only the temperature didn't cooperate. It was near freezing and parts of the Parkway had been shutdown due to 50 mile per hour winds.
