April 5-7

 

Did you know that 27 United States Presidents have visited America’s Resort™? Were you aware that The Greenbrier was once known as Ashford General Hospital and housed wounded U.S. soldiers during World War II? Have you seen the chandelier from “Gone With the Wind” that hangs in the Lobby Bar? Have you heard stories from the visits from celebrities like Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Shaquille O’Neal and Jennifer Garner? Do you know the legend of the “love clock” in the North Parlor or the story of how legendary ambassador Frank Mosley first landed a job at The Greenbrier?

The history at America’s Resort™ is entertaining, fascinating and almost unbelievable at times, and that incredible journey, which first began in 1778 when guests first came to “take the water” from the famous sulfur springs, will be celebrated during a Special Legends Weekend April 5-April 7, 2019.

With compelling history presentations, question and answer sessions with legendary Team Members of The Greenbrier, book signings, homes tours and much more, the weekend will provide the opportunity to look back on the iconic past of America’s Resort™, while also celebrating the incredible future. Embrace the resort’s history and the people who lived it during a special weekend you don’t want to miss.

   — Top Notch Estate Home: Built in 1912, the estate originally served as the private residence of George Stevens, President of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad. Top Notch became an estate home in 1930 and was reserved for large families and special guests spending summers at The Greenbrier. During World War II, many illustrious generals occupied Top Notch including General and Mrs. Dwight D. Eisenhower.
   — Baltimore G Cottage: Latrobe of Baltimore designed the first free-standing unit in what came to be known as Baltimore Row in 1832. The resort was then owned by the Calwell family from Baltimore and eventually the entire row was owned by Baltimore families. After the Civil War, Robert E. Lee and family summered in Baltimore G cottage.
   — President's Cottage Museum: The Greenbrier has been host to 27 U.S. presidents. The memorable moments from their stays are on display at The Presidents' Cottage Museum, housed in a historic two-story building overlooking the Springhouse. These archives contain documents dating back to The Greenbrier's early history.
   — Presidential Suite: The Presidential Suite, the most spacious and luxurious of all The Greenbrier suites, is much like a home within the Virginia Wing. The seven-bedroom suite occupies two floors and is entered through a private foyer. Features library, den with half bath, large living room with grand piano, reception foyer, private patio and an impressive dining room where The Greenbrier's famous, "Gold Service" dinners are frequently served.

The Presidential Suite held up to its name when President Dwight D. Eisenhower held the North American Summit Conference here in 1956. In addition, it has been the residence of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Prince Rainier and Princess Grace of Monaco and many other notables of society.
