My girlfriend and I drove around frosty Asheville on Saturday morning, coffees in hands, past some of the older areas of town, and stopped at Overlook Castle. The house was built by Fred Seely, Jr., who in 1912 worked with Edwin Wiley Grove to build the Grove Park Inn, here in Asheville, North Carolina. Conversely, the castle at Overlook was built as a private home and has been passed along several owners, the current ones being not very keen on visitors (as evident in the pack of guard dogs behind the barbed wire fence).¹
So while I was taking pictures through the space in the fence, and before the dogs got there, I was able to get these..
More information and photographs of the castle to come…
