Create an itinerary including Moses H. Cone Memorial Park
The former estate of a wealthy entrepreneur and philanthropist, Moses H. Cone Memorial Park combines lavish living with natural beauty. At the heart of the 1,416 hectare (3,500 acre) estate sits Flat Top Manor, a massive Colonial Revival-style mansion built in 1901. The manor now houses the Parkway Craft Center, which displays handmade crafts by local artists. Due to Moses Cone's interest in conservation, the estate contains large forests of white pine and hemlock hedges, as well as man-made lakes filled with bass and trout. You can explore the grounds on carriage trails which guide you through the estate; they also wind past the family cemetery and near the carriage and apple barn. Put Moses H. Cone Memorial Park and other Blowing Rock attractions into our Blowing Rock trip builder website, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Moses Cone is a beautiful place to visit but it was not open due to renovations. The view from the mansion is stunning with the mountains and Bass Lake in front of the mansion.

  • I always love coming up here to visit. The host is under some much needed repair and I'm so happy to see its being maintained for future generations. Can't wait for my many more future visits!
  • Great place to visit, we go there every time we are in Boone/ Blowing Rock area. The refurbished manor looks great. Good walking trails and one of the best places around for pictures
