Abstract:
The Toy House was built in 1924 as home for the Tyron Toymakers and Woodcarvers, a project started by Eleanor Vance and Charlotte Yale, who wanted to help the native population through development of their crafts. The Toy House sold unusual carved furniture, frames, and wooden toys. A fire later destroyed tools, patterns, and supplies, leaving the house empty and waiting. The Guilberts of Boston, sold their home in suburban New England to reopen the Toy House and begin the process again of making over fifty different toys, ideas coming from many sources including adult customers memories.

In 1954, passports were issued to 5,642 North Carolinians, which is an increase of over 300 percent of foreign travel over the last five years.

This section of the map shows the northwestern limits of the cartographer's knowledge for the time period. It goes up to the Blue Ridge and stops. The map displays Mulberry Fields as the location of modern Wilkesboro. Today's South Mountains were then called Montague Mountains, and the 'Indian Road' running past Table Rock down to the Catawba River probably was the trail known as the Nickajack Trail.
