The Jackson County Arts Council is excited to host our first “Historic and Architecture Tour” on Saturday, May 25, 2019. The tour will begin at the Jackson County Library at 3p, where a local historian will discuss the history and design of the once Jackson County Courthouse. Maps will be given out so that you can begin your self-guided journey of the Old Carolina Hotel (Main St, Sylva), The Old Queen House (Woody home in Dillsboro), and the Appalachian Women’s Museum (Old Monteith House in Dillsboro). Home owners or historians will be on site to discuss each location. Come see secret tunnels, gain new insights, and hear stories inside some of the most interesting homes and buildings in the region.
This event will cost $10 per person; children are free and must be accompanied by an adult at all times during the tour. NOT ALL SITES ARE ADA COMPLIANT. Tickets may be purchased in advance by contacting the Jackson County Arts Council or any JCAC Board Member. Tickets will be available at the start of the tour on Saturday, May 25.
The Jackson County Arts Council would like to thank Phil and Gayle Woody, Greg and Jenny McPherson, Cathy Busick (AWM), and the Jackson County Public Library for opening their doors for us to explore.
