WLOS TV Visits the North Carolina Room Again!

Homeland Park, circa 1940. Title on back of card reads: DELUXE CAMP, HOMELAND PARK, BOX 55, OTEEN NC STEAM HEATED, DELUXE CAMP, HOMELAND PARK

WLOS anchor Frank Fraboni was looking for answers to an ASK 13 question about what ever happened to the oversize coffee pots that used to be at the entrance to the Homeland Park Tourist cabins in East Asheville just past the WNC Nature Center. He landed on our HeardTell blog post we had written last November about tourists courts, so came to talk to North Carolina Room staff about our post and what we knew. Our records concerning the coffee pots at the entrance says that they were in place in March of 1996 but not there in December of 1998.

Here is the link to the WLOS coverage:


And here is the link to our earlier blog post on tourist courts:
