General note:
Dr. E.W. Grove's Grove Park Inn and Resort complex was built in 1913 with granite stones mined from Sunset Mountain. The resort, overlooking the city of Asheville, N.C., provided majestic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and was a huge attraction for both local residents and guests. In addition to the main lodge, a golf course, and various outbuildings, the Grove Park complex included many individual cottages and residences which today make up Grove Park Historic District (Roughly bounded by Evelyn Place, Macon Avenue, Howland Road, Woodland Road, Canterbury Lane, Charlotte Street, and Murdock Avenue) . Perhaps the most famous owner of one of the district's cottages was William Jennings Bryan, who was the keynote speaker at Grove Park's Grand Opening. Projects 318 - 329 are all part of the Grove Park complex. http://go.ncsu.edu/groveparkinn_resorthistory; http://go.ncsu.edu/groveparkinn_collection_unc-a; http://go.ncsu.edu/grovepark_histordistrict
