Join App State’s Dr. Neva J. Specht for an in-depth look at the iconic Beaux-Arts Cone estate (known originally as Flat Top Manor) near Blowing Rock.

This property excites visitors and leads to questions about when it was built and who occupied the estate. Through three narrative threads, this talk will touch on the histories of the Cone and Lindau families (including Moses’ famous art-collecting sisters), the lives of the Cones and their workers while traveling on a world tour and during their residences in Baltimore and Blowing Rock; and how Flat Top Manor has been interpreted by the National Parks Service over the years.
