Junaluska, a Boone neighborhood, is one of the oldest African-American communities in Western North Carolina. It was founded by fifteen families shortly after the Civil War, and by 1900 the population had grown to over one hundred residents. Three years ago the Junaluska Heritage Association formed to uncover their past through genealogy records, photographs, and oral histories.
