The Blue Ridge National Heritage Area
The Blue Ridge National Heritage AreaThe Blue Ridge National Heritage Area was designated by Congress and the President in November, 2003 in recognition of the unique character, culture, crafts, music, agriculture, and natural beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains and foothills in Western North Carolina. The Blue Ridge National Heritage Area has great significance, not only to historical North Carolina, but also to the history of our nation. The Blue Ridge National Heritage Area is dotted with small towns and cities with downtowns and neighborhoods that have been officially designated as Historic Districts in North Carolina.  Some of these quaint small Appalachian towns began as post-Revolutionary War settlements.  Others evolved from 19th-century farm communities or as a direct result of the coming of the railroad to Western North Carolina after the Civil War. Blue Ridge Heritage Trail interpretive signs tell the rich natural and cultural heritage stories of Western North Carolina. The Mast Farm Inn and The Mast General Store were each designated as one of the 69 Official Blue Ridge National Heritage markers and will be receiving our interpretive signs historic marker at The Inn shortly. It features Josephine Mast, Woodrow Wilson and The Loom House.

The steep walls of Linville Gorge enclose the Linville River for 12 miles. The river, which begins at Grandfather Mountain, enters the gorge at the spectacular Linville Falls then descends over 2,000 feet before breaking into the Catawba Valley on its way to Lake James. The Cherokee called it “Eeseeoh,” meaning “river of many cliffs,” a reference to the many vertical rock outcroppings that line the gorge. The Linville Gorge Wilderness Area is a magnet for hikers, backpackers, and rock climbers. Linville Gorge is prime habitat for wildlife, including deer, bear, raccoon, turkey, and ruffled grouse. Hunting and fishing are allowed but permits are required. The Linville Gorge Wilderness Area is managed by the US Forest Service as part of the Pisgah National Forest.

Grandfather Mountain
Grandfather Mountain • Located 20 minutes from The Inn, Grandfather Mountain’s lofty heights offer guests opportunities for rejuvenation, excitement and family memories in a natural haven that will endure forever. Grandfather Mountain’s stone profile faces have long gazed out over the ancient Appalachians, earning the acclaim of explorers and botanists alike as the apex of the Blue Ridge in grandeur and ecological diversity. Until 2008, Grandfather Mountain was privately owned and operated as a nature preserve and tourist attraction. It was and still is best known for its mile-high swinging bridge, the highest in America, built in 1952 by Hugh Morton. The bridge links two of the mountain’s rocky peaks, and is known as the “swinging” bridge due to its tendency to sway in high winds. Marvel at 360-degree views from the Mile High Swinging Bridge, stand eye-to-eye with native wildlife in natural habitats, hike its majestic trails, and interact with Grandfather Mountain’s friendly & knowledgeable staff. Grandfather Mountain also hosts the annual Highland Games and Gathering O’ Scottish Clans. In 1992, Grandfather Mountain was selected by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, UNESCO, for recognition as a member of the international network of Biosphere Reserves, and is now a an Official UN Biosphere Reserve. There are fewer than 50 biosphere reserves in America, among which Big Bend National Park, Cape Lookout National Seashore, Denali National Park, Glacier Bay National Park, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, Sequoia National Park, and Yellowstone National Park. • WebSite | FaceBook | Twitter | Google+ | InstaGram | Pinterest | Location | More Information
