Love Valley

Record #:
Love Valley is the boyhood dream of Jetter Andrew Barker, Jr., who grew up wanting to build an old West town. In 1954, in the western North Carolina mountains, his dream became a reality in Love Valley. Buildings are required to look one hundred years old; cars are prohibited on main streets; and residents observe the Code of the West. Barker, now 76, has been mayor since 1954.
