Free Guided Tours of the Hickory Ridge Living History Museum

July 29 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Appalachian State University’s High Country Humanities—with support from North Carolina Humanities—will offer free guided tours of the Hickory Ridge Living History Museum for up to 75 people on Monday, July 29, 2024 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The Hickory Ridge Living History Museum is located at 501 Horn in the West Drive in Boone.

Join Yadkin Riverkeeper Brian Fannon and other public history experts for guided tours of the Hickory Ridge Living History Museum, a site with six historic, furnished cabins that recreate the atmosphere of eighteenth and nineteenth century mountain communities. Learn what rural life was like for pioneers in the High Country.

This program is the fifth one in High Country Humanities’ ongoing series “Connecting Local and Global Rural Cultures.” This series of talks, workshops, demonstrations and film screenings is supported by a grant from North Carolina Humanities. Each event is designed for general audiences and will help the campus and broader public learn about the stories, histories and traditions of rural communities from our state and around the world.

The tours are free and open to the public. Capacity is limited to 75 patrons, who will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis. For a disability accommodation, visit odr.appstate.edu.

For more information, contact Dr. Darci Gardner, director of High Country Humanities, via email at GardnerDL1@appstate.edu or by phone at (828) 262-2928.
