Historical note:
Herbert Delahaye Miles was a financier and businessman, (Vice President of Chicago's Armour and Company meatpackers) who, on doctor's orders, moved to Asheville in 1912 when his wife contracted tuberculosis. In addition to his Albemarle Park estate, "Breezemont", Miles purchased several other Asheville properties, and built the Vanderbilt Hotel. In November 1989, the Asheville City Council designated Albemarle Park a Local Historic District. Albemarle Park is a landmark in residential planning, architecture and landscape design that has been recognized to be of national significance. Its centerpiece is "The Manor," built in 1898. Every single one of its significant structures is still intact and relatively unchanged today. http://go.ncsu.edu/1912directory; http://go.ncsu.edu/herbertmiles_unc-a; http://go.ncsu.edu/albemarlepark_histordistrict; http://go.ncsu.edu/albemarlepark_tour
