Statement of Significance (as of designation - June 21, 1990):
One of the country's oldest resorts, the Greenbrier (1820) was originally built to cater to wealthy Southerners. Known from its beginnings as the "Queen of the Southern Spas," the large complex of sulphur springs, luxury accomodations, formal gardens, and golf courses is still a primary symbol of gracious Southern entertaining. The center building has been added to over the years, but the fashionable resort,as a whole is in excellent condition.
