From the N.C. State Archives blog:
Yes, the rumors are true- the NC State Archives is branching out and opening a new office in the Land of Sky. The Western Regional Archives will be based out of the Western Office in Asheville and is in the process of getting the place ready for a grand opening on August 10th.
The new Archivist, Heather South, has been moving boxes, making forms, cataloging books, setting up equipment, learning the ropes, and getting everything in place for our patrons. We are thrilled to finally be able to better serve the western part of the state so keep checking back for updates on our progress!
Thanks to Amy Waller for the heads up on this story.
