I thought for a moment I was in the Old South of years gone by.
It was a momentary feeling -- well, it did last for a few minutes.
And the place with such a view is Flattop Manor in the Moses H. Cone Memorial Park just outside Blowing Rock, NC.
The house is not ante-bellum, and didn't have anything to do with the Civil War.
But it looks like it could have.
The estate was created by Moses H. Cone (known as the Denim King) and his wife Bertha.
And they later decided to expand their holdings and opened businesses in Greensboro, NC.
The brothers efforts were extremely successful and they shared that success with the communities in which they lived.
The estate is now part of the Blue Ridge Parkway system and the house serves as the parkway craft center.
