Forty miles southwest of Asheville is the Balsam Mountain Inn, a 100-year-old wooden structure railroad hotel. Merrily Teasley bought it in 1990 and undertook the restoration, which earned a certificate of historic restoration. There are no telephones, no television--just peace and quiet and an older form of entertainment, music. Teasley grew up in Eastern Tennessee and developed a love of country music. In 1996, she started a monthly songwriter series that attracts some big-time country musicians to the Balsam.
War Memorial Stadium opened in 1926 in Greensboro as a dedication to the soldier boys of World War I. For over seventy-five years baseball teams played there, but by 1998 deterioration was claiming the structure. Its time had passed, but the great memories lingered. While NC A & T University plays games there, a decision on what to do with the stadium is still pending.
