Excerpt:

Brookland is significant in the area of architecture for being representative of high style Federal, early Greek Revival, and Colonial Revival styles dating from 1836 through the early twentieth century, reflecting the changing needs of the owners through the years. Brookland is also significant for its contribution to the overall social history of Henderson County from the early decades of the nineteenth century through the mid-twentieth century as an important estate located in an enclave of summer homes, built by wealthy families from the low country of Charleston and other coastal areas, in Flat Rock, known as the “Little Charleston of the Mountains”. The remaining large estates of these families are located in Flat Rock, but Brookland is the only one of these located within the current city limits of Hendersonville.
