Tours of Grovewood Village’s historic dye house start April 1

The dye house, located in historic Grovewood Village, next door to the Grove Wood Gallery, has sat empty since 1980. The building, part of Biltmore Industries, houses the original looms, carding machines and mule spinners used to make the famed homespun fabric that was worn by the likes of Presidents Herbert Hoover and Franklin Roosevelt, and first ladies Eleanor Roosevelt and Grace Coolidge
