The story began thousands of years ago – The Cherokee and Catawba traded plants and medicinal remedies at ‘The Flat Rock’. In light of further evidence being available interpretations of the past continue to grow and strengthen what is known as the American Story.

The film depicts a slice of this history. The story begins with the Cherokee, the early settlers who received Revolutionary War land grants building roads and commerce, and seasonal residents who came to the mountains for health reasons and brought enslaved people. Others came to expand their wealth and traveled from southern coastal areas and Philadelphia.

It unfolds why Historic Flat Rock Inc. was founded in 1968 and explains its efforts to protect and preserve the history of Flat Rock. Those efforts led to the creation of the largest historical district in North Carolina, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The importance of preservation easements come to life in the segment entitled “The Wakening of Mountain Lodge”.

You can view the documentary in the safety of your own homes one time or have it to view as often as you wish.
