Located adjacent to the Blue Ridge Parkway at milepost 331, the historic Skyline Inn was built by John M Greer in the side of the mountain at the entrance to a cavern, where a moonshine still was located. Construction began in 1942 and was completed in 1948 financed by the moonshine money. Mr. Greer was a master carpenter and stonemason. His handy work is present in the wood paneling, marble floors and wood inlay tables throughout the building. Tales abound about the secret tunnels and caverns used by the moonshining crews and their activities during the 1940s and 50s.
