Village Homes

The residential area of the Henry River Mill Village consisted of approximately 35 small worker’s cottages. Twenty-one are still standing today. These 1-1/2 story duplex houses were laid out along the steep contours of the river’s northern bank. The workers lived in two-family boarding houses or workers’ cottages built by the company, which were leased at nominal fees.

Bass Lake from Cone Manor

Located on the hills near Blowing Rock, North Carolina, the Moses Cone Manor house, completed in 1901, is an impressive piece of period architecture popping out of the mountain landscape.  The walk down the steps provides a breath-taking view of Bass Lake below and the surrounding mountains accented by the always changing sky.
