"Henderson County became a mecca for summer tourists beginning in 1827 when the first people from the low country of South Carolina began buying land from earlier settlers and county residents and building summer estates in the community of Flat Rock."  Henderson Heritage - Flat Rock

"In 1940 and 1941, the Vagabond Players led by Robroy Farquhar performed in the summers at the site of the old grist mill at Highland Lake. After World War II, the group opened a playhouse on Lake Summit in Tuxedo. In 1952, the Vagabond Players purchased the Lowndes home in Flat Rock and incorporated as the Vagabond School of Drama. The Flat Rock Playhouse was designated as the State Theater of North Carolina in 1961."  Henderson Heritage - Flat Rock
