History

From Wikipedia:
The Battery Park Hotel is the name given to two hotels in Asheville, North Carolina. The one standing today [now Battery Park Apartments] is 14 stories tall and was built in 1924 by Edwin W. Grove, during a time of increased tourism in the North Carolina mountains. It replaced a Queen Anne style hotel[2] which stood 125 feet tall. The name came from the fact that Confederate forces used the site for batteries of artillery.[3] CONTINUED: Battery Park Hotel on Wikipedia
