Ever wanted to see what the High Country was like before
streetlights? What about before tourists and strip malls?
Now you can. The
Banner House Museum in Banner Elk lets you visit the 19th century.
Through displays, demonstrations and walking tours, the museum showcases the
trials, as well as pastimes of some of the ancestors of folks currently in the
High Country. Its Grand Opening on Saturday was a hit- and it only gets better
The Museum will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 11
a.m. until 4 p.m. Walking tours of the
historic district of Banner Elk are available for an additional fee.
