The lobby of Grove Park Inn, Asheville, N. C., is one of the most wonderful rooms in the world. Built of a unique collection of native boulders, flint, and mica, it is 120 feet long by 80 feet wide and can comfortably entertain a thousand people. At each end of the room there are two enormous fireplaces, each room there are two enormous fireplaces, each of which required 120 tons of boulders to build. They are 6 feet high and 36 feet wide and burn logs as large as 12 feet in length. These fireplaces are a source of interest and awe to the many visitors to the Inn.
