Historical Note

The Biltmore Forestry School was headquartered in the town of Sunburst, N.C. from 1910 to 1913. The village of Sunburst is located on the Pigeon River, just west of Mount Pisgah. The Champion Fibre Company constructed the village prior to their beginning logging operations in the area. The school had been forced to vacate their facilities at Biltmore in 1910 because George Vanderbilt took possession of Carl Schenck's holdings on the Biltmore Estate. Reuben B. Robertson, manager of the company, offered the use of the facilities to Dr. Schenck and his students. The town of Sunburst had rooms for the students, cabins for the teaching staff and a modern schoolhouse. Carl Schenck was particularly excited about the location because it offered the students the opportunity of direct observation of hardwood and spruce forests, logging operations, sawmills under construction, different types of log chutes and flumes, splash dams in operation and an up-to-date pulp mill.
