A Carolina Treasure

Friday, January 06, 2006

All those rogues have come to Grandfather Mountain at some point in the last 50 years, come to see Morton, the mountain, and its animals. Ted Williams went fishing here. Billy Graham had his picture taken with Mildred the Bear, the longtime mascot of Grandfather who was so gentle that Morton used to bring her into the Grandfather Mountain café at lunch and watch her amaze his customers. Holding prominent places in the rogues gallery are a collection of famous Tar Heels. (Tar Heel Blue)
