Just south of Hendersonville, North Carolina, is the former residence of Pulitzer Prize winner Carl Sandburg. The house sits on a 240-acre farm on the side of a mountain in the Blue Ridge foothills. Built in 1838, the house has a high porch and is constructed of white clapboard. Sandburg's wife, Paula, raised goats as a hobby. The farm is the only National Historic Site of its kind. Visitors can take twenty-minute tours of the house with the accompaniment of the National Park Service guide. Here, they can see how the famous writer created such master pieces as the biography of Abraham Lincoln and his â€œComplete Poemsâ€ on a typewriter which sat on an orange crate.
