Mountain Adventures

Record #:
Visitors to North Carolina's mountain region will find many attractions in this culturally rich area, including old-time music, arts and crafts, quaint inns, Appalachian cooking, and numerous hiking trails. House describes four places to visit: Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest in Graham County, which contains 400-year-old trees standing over 100 feet tall and twenty miles of hiking trails; Emerald Village in Mitchell County, which shows how a mining town lived between the 1920s and 1930s; Tweetsie Railroad in Watauga County, where vintage-style attractions are available at the state's oldest theme park; and Valdese in Burke County, settled by the Waldenses from northern Italy over 100 years ago.
