Carl Sandburg was an American poet, historian, author, and lecturer who spent the final 22 years of his long and productive life at his estate in Flat Rock, NC. Today this National Historic Site offers a keen insight on Mr. Sandburg, his family and their 264 acre working farm. The Sandburg Home was built in 1838 and now houses his collection of 10,000 books, notes and papers. There are numerous hiking trails and a functional goat barn, where Mrs. Sandburg raised her prize winning goats, located next to the Flat Rock Play House.
