The Blowing Rock Charity Horse Show is the country’s oldest continuously running show of its kind - since 1923.

Annie Oakley taught marksmanship for a time at the Mayview Manor, one of Blowing Rock’s most famed resorts. It once overlooked the John’s River Gorge.

The Green Park Inn, one of the area’s first hotels, sits directly on the Eastern Continental Divide. The Green Park area was once a larger community than Blowing Rock. It was the first major settlement at the top of the mountain, and had its own post office, stores, and dairy, as well as the hotel.
