The windy cliffs of Blowing Rock were home to the Cherokee and the Catawba Indian tribes before 1752. These tribes, who were adversaries, are the basis of the famous story of “The Blowing Rock: Two star-crossed lovers, one from each tribe, were walking near The Rock when the reddening sky signaled to the brave that he must return to his tribal duty, and the maiden urged him to stay with her. His desperation in choosing between duty and love caused him to leap from the edge of the gorge toward the rocks below, while the maiden beseeched the Great Spirit to bring him back to her. The famous winds of the John’s River Gorge blew her lover back into her arms, and this legend about The Blowing Rock is still told today.”
The Greenes were the first prominent family to settle in Blowing Rock in the mid-1800’s. They chose a piece of land that would become the Green Park Hotel property. Other early family settlers in Blowing Rock were the Hayes, Coffey, Bolick, Estes and Storie families. All still recognized today through their namesake in the High Country and the campus of Appalachian State University.
