Who Needed Money?


Abstract:
Helen Ashley Carver came to Tryon in 1885 when wages for men were 50 cents a day and for women, 25 cents a day. Carver paid her gardener 65 cents a day and paid a vineyard caretaker $1 a day, after which she was found guilty of raising wages and subsequently became unpopular.\r\n
