The inviting Grove Park neighborhood of Asheville, just northeast of downtown, was the vision of Edwin Wiley Grove, pharmaceutical magnate from St. Louis, and is North Carolina's first suburban neighborhood. The first lots were sold in 1909 in an area of curved streets, parks and natural landscaping, and many of the home are sited on wooded parcels averaging .5 acre, with some size variance due to some owners having smartly assembled plots over time.

The inviting Grove Park neighborhood of Asheville, just northeast of downtown, was the vision of Edwin Wiley Grove, pharmaceutical magnate from St. Louis, and is North Carolina's first suburban neighborhood. The first lots were sold in 1909 in an area of curved streets, parks and natural landscaping, and many of the home are sited on wooded parcels averaging .5 acre, with some size variance due to some owners having smartly assembled plots over time.

Like so many other Asheville residents, including another well-known “tourist", Biltmore House owner George W. Vanderbilt, Grove was at once impressed with the scenery and the climate. The Vanderbilt's estate, built in the late 1800's on the south end of town, led the way for Grove and others with similar visions to develop more areas. Along with other well-knowns, like architect Richard Sharp Smith, their architectural planning shaped much of the look of the area. The Grove Park neighborhood achieved national status after being placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
