Gate House 2007

Return to 1937 Plan

The Gate House is a small one-room building with a porch. It was constructed by Grove at the main entrance to the property. Black Mountain College used it as a music practice room. It also was a favorite site for parties.

The bench which is now on the porch of the Gate House was one of several which were on the property when the college purchased Lake Eden.

Alterations by Black Mountain College: Insulation and heating installed.

2007: Camp Rockmont divided it into two rooms. It is used for storage.
