Grove Park Sustainable Neighborhood –National Historic in
The Grove Park Neighborhood in Asheville, NC, named for developer Edwin W. Grove curves into the foot of Sunset Mountain.

It is graced by the Grove Park Inn, built of massive boulders reinforced by concrete and capped with a burnt-orange tiled roof.
