In 2001, The Blowing Rock Historical Society published Volume I of Post Cards of Historic Blowing Rock. This full color, 126-page book featured post cards of the Blowing Rock area, including downtown and Main Street, the Blowing Rock (namesake of the village), churches, estates, hotels, inns, motels, and restaurants. In addition, scenic views of mountain terrain, curving roads and trails, Grandfather Mountain, waterfalls, and other attractions were captured in the post card format. The historical thrust of Volume I was a celebration of this special place in the years from the 1880s to 1975. This book was so well received that Volume II has been published to continue the historic journey started with the first book. Additional collectors came forward with new cards that had not been featured in Volume I, and the project of presenting this volume was undertaken with dedication and industry by the Post Card Book Committee. New insights have been gained about the significant role that the postal card played in marketing this unique area to the flatlanders down the mountain. The desire for clean air, cool breezes, and unparalleled vistas brought visitors to Blowing Rock from surrounding states and the cities of the Carolinas, as well as Florida and the Deep South. Seasonal homeowners returned year after year to entertain guests and share the glories of "The Crown of the Blue Ridge." This volume tells of the special village called "Green Park," separated from the village of Blowing Rock until they were joined together in 1927 by annexation. It shows the tourist industry in attractions that were available to visitors and celebrates some homes that were important enough to have post cards made of them. A furtherance of the mission of chronicling Blowing Rock's history is in the second volume.
