Did you know that May is Historic Preservation Month? Historic preservation groups all over the country are holding events and activities, and here in Transylvania County local preservation groups have a number of events lined up to showcase our local history.
Our colleagues at the Transylvania County Historical Society are hosting a unique event at the Allison-Deaver House, the oldest standing frame house in Western North Carolina. A traditional afternoon tea will be held as a fund-raiser on Saturday, May 20, with seatings at 1:30 and 3:00 pm. (Update: the 1:30 seating is sold out.) Tickets are $25, and the money raised supports restoration of this ca. 1815 house. If you are a fan of local history, or tea parties, or both, visit the Historical Society’s web site to reserve your tickets.
