1. Biltmore Dairy Bar Marker
Inscription.  The original Biltmore Dairy Bar began as an extension of the estate's dairy operations, established in 1897 as part of George Vanderbilt's vision of Biltmore as a self-sustaining farm.

Thanks to the prized herd of Jersey cows, the dairy provided delicious milk, butter, and ice cream to residents throughout Western North Carolina.

Today, Biltmore Dairy Bar honors that tradition with vanilla ice cream based on an original Biltmore Dairy recipe.
