Mountain Heritage Lecture Series
by Mary Jane McCall
This summer, you might want to add Cashiers Historical Society’s lecture series to your “To Do List.”
After the interest and success of Year One, CHS has added a second year of the Mountain Heritage Lecture Series. And if you missed the first lecture featuring Dr. Will Peebles of Western Carolina University, you can mark your calendar for the two remaining lectures.
On Thursday, August 15, you’ll have an opportunity to hear from Trevor Howard. Mr. Howard is always a favorite in March at the society’s Heritage Apple Day and his topic for this program is “Apples: The Propagation of Budding Varieties and Splicing Different Varieties of Apples and Roses Together.” Mark the date now.
In September, the third and final lecture of this year will be on Thursday, September 5, and will feature Dr. John Barrow. After spending more than 20 years in education, he joined McKee Properties. Dr. Barrow’s lecture is sure to be interesting as it will cover “Appalachian Stories: Richard Chase, The Jack Tales and the Grandfather Tales.”
Lectures will be held on the beautiful grounds of the Zachary-Tolbert House on Hwy. 107 S. in the Dowden Pavilion, weather permitting. In case of rain, lectures will be in Col. John’s Cabin.
All lectures begin at 11:00 A.M. and usually last about an hour-and-a-half. Admission is free and light refreshments are provided.
