Notes

Significance: The Overhills Historic District is an intact collection of buildings and landscapes—recreational, ornamental and natural—that together reflect the social and sporting privileges of an elite class of Americans from 1906 to 1938. The property is significant in North Carolina as a sizable and intact winter estate and hunt club as well for the continuity provided the landscape by a 65-year Percy Avery Rockefeller family stewardship. The native longleaf pine and wiregrass ecosystem provides a subtle backdrop for the lush evergreen landscaping, vernacular and designed buildings, and the equestrian facilities of the estate, while traces of hunt courses and bridle paths weave across the landscape. Fields of the J. Van Lindley Nursery and tenant farmers are still scattered in their historic patterns.
