The Moses H. Cone Manor is the former summer home of of one of the biggest late 19th century industrialist of this area. The home is located on the original 3600 acre estate, now part of the National Park System. It is worth the visit just to take advantage of panoramic mountain view and Bass Lake, lying below in the valley. You can also shop for some authentic mountain crafts in the Southern Highland Craft Guild located on the ground floor of the Manor. If you would like a guided history tour, call ahead and schedule a tour of the upstairs of the Manor. Tours are by appointment only. Our tour was conducted by a Park Ranger who made the history of the house and the Cone family very interesting, although I felt like she was a little sketchy with some of the facts. All in all, it was a good experience and a great way to get a better understanding of the area 's history.
