Castle in the Sky

Record #:
In 1913 Fred Seely put his mark on Asheville with the completion of the Grove Park Inn. In 1914, he began work on a family home, a castle that would stand on a 29-acre site on the crest of nearby Sunset Mountain. Called Overlook, aka Seely's Castle, it was sold by his wife in 1949. Since then it has passed through five known owners, including Asheville-Biltmore College, the predecessor of UNC-Asheville, and Jerry Sternberg, a local businessman and raconteur.
