Looking back in time

As a docent at the Swannanoa Valley History Museum, I can share some of the exhibits with you.  The museum and history center is right in the middle of town in Black Mountain.  It's open Tues - Saturday, 10-5 during spring, summer and fall months.  The main display is about Beacon Blanket Mills, which I shared earlier here and here.

Today Old US-70 passes by the old entrance to this property, and there are schools across the street.  I never knew that it was the site of this WW II hospital.

A very modern Veterans Medical Center is located right down the road toward Asheville.


  1. Hello,

    This is an interesting museum and exhibit. Thanks for sharing.
    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Local museums are interesting and important.
