Haywood County looks over the Biltmore estate. Although this estate is mainly recognized for the lavash life style of the Gilded ages, this county, like this bow, has another side. It was also the birth place of the first forestry school in North America (Biltmore Forest School). The establishment of the school shone a bright light on the effects of extracting resources form the wilderness and the importance of maintaining a healthy ecosystem, to ensure resources for generations to come. If you look back on the photos of the students hard at work in the field you will notice they are wearing bow ties and neck ties. Way to stay dapper, fellas.
