On Sunday, January 29th, we will explore the history of the Riceville area, the westernmost part of the valley with local historian and author of Images of America: Riceville, Anne Chesky.
The tour will begin at the Riceville Presbyterian Church’s sanctuary and then continue into the historic heart of the valley. Participants will hear stories about Riceville’s founders and their descendants. The tour includes stops at two cemeteries, several log cabin ruins, historic businesses and post offices, and Camp Awaniko.
Meet at the Black Mountain Savings Bank at 1:30pm to carpool to the church or you may meet at 2:00pm at the Riceville Presbyterian Church sanctuary.
Cost is $15 for Museum members; $25 for nonmembers. Please RSVP online or by calling 828-669-9566
