Joe E. Cannon House
John’s River Gorge, Blowing Rock, NC
The large, luxurious mountain home was built for textile industrialist Joseph E. Cannon in a rustic style typical of the time and place, using native stone and chestnut wood and bark. Blowing Rock was a favorite mountain resort for wealthy piedmont industrialists and other businessmen and their families. Like many of their residences, the Cannon house stands in a private and remote location.
