So I'm exploring and hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Asheville, NC for a couple of days. And I keep seeing these signs directing me to 'Vance Birthplace" while I'm already in the middle of nowhere. Who was Vance? Had to find out. Turns out he was the "Civil War Governor" of North Carolina, and a lot more. Wasn't much he didn't do politically and militarily. This is a beautiful and professionally done tribute to the man. A small rebuilt estate with colonial era outbuildings and great exhibits. Very glad my curiosity got the best of me. Friendly staff. But you better follow the signs. You won't find this out-of-the-way attraction accidentally.
