This event will celebrate the traditions and cultures of the people who called the North Carolina mountains home in the early 1800s. Visitors can tour the site including an original 1790s slave dwelling. See and smell the open-hearth cooking in the 1795 fireplace, make your own candle, and discover how everyday life has changed over time. Watch as a blacksmith hammers out useful tools or try your hand on the potter’s wheel. Visitors can make a day of it and enjoy old-time music, crafts for kids, and treats for sale from Mountain View Barbecue and Deli.
