Beech Mountain is surrounded with myths and legends making it a unique tourist location. Skiing on the mountain initiated in the 1930s when an instructor at Lees McRae College took an interest in skiing, and with his students founded the Skiing Zero Club. It was reported that in the 1940s, gold and silver were found on Beech Mountain. In 1955, Grover Robbins Jr. and his brother Harry designed and built the Wild West Theme Park Tweetsie Railroad, located between Boone and Blowing Rock, and later in 1970, the brothers opened “The Land of Oz” attraction. The resort was a vision of the Robbins Brothers, and remains a gem of North Carolina tourism.
