Description
The Coxe collection consists of original business and personal correspondence, property acquisition records, and a smaller component of printed materials, transcripts, oversized items, and photographs, of the Tench, Francis Sidney, and Franklin Coxe line of the family and their descendents, dating from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Chronologically, the collection begins with transcript items and original papers dating from the eighteenth century, during the time of Tench Coxe (1755-1824), and continues through the early 1980s. (For a more complete description of the Coxe family, see the summary of the Frank Coxe oral history.) The majority of the collection is original. Overall, the bulk of these materials concern the Coxe family's early business and political activities in Pennsylvania; Early land acquisitions in North Carolina primarily Rutherford County, and subsequent Coxe business and property interests in Pennsylvania, Rutherford County, NC, and Asheville, NC, from the later nineteenth through mid-twentieth centuries. The collection also includes transcripts of original documents(eg., a letter listed in the earlier inventory as dated 1794, from Thomas Jefferson), or later published materials. Twentieth century materials include items from the estate of Frank Coxe (d.1903), including property deeds, wills, correspondence, blueprints of downtown Asheville, documents concerning the consturction and operation of the Battery Park Hotel, and material concerning real estate projects and family genealogy in the mid-twentieth century through 1984. There is also a collection of 140 images of historic and genealogical interest, spanning the years from the late 1800's to the mid-twentieth century.

Biography

Colonel Frank Coxe was born in 1839 on Green River Plantation Rutherford County, NC to Francis Sidney Coxe and Jane McBee Alexander. Col. Frank Coxe fought for both the Union and the Confederacy as recorded in papers found after his death. He apparently had two proxies who served his duty on both sides of the war. Following the Civil War, Col. Frank Coxe increased his land holdings in western North Carolina and his familial Pennsylvania anthracite coal interests, becoming a man of substantial wealth. In 1881, he moved to Charlotte where he became the Vice-President of the Western North Carolina railroad, the first railroad to traverse the mountains of western North Carolina. The railroad came to western North Carolina largely through the funding of Col. Frank Coxe and the tourists came largely because of the railroad. Shortly after 1881, Col. Coxe moved to Asheville where he purchased large tracts of land. In 1886, Col. Coxe built the famous Battery Park Hotel, welcoming such patrons as Franklin Roosevelt, Teddy Roosevelt, Grover Cleveland, William McKinley, William Henry Harrison, and George Vanderbilt. Col. Frank Coxe died in 1903 at Green River Plantation Rutherford County, NC.
