  • Loved being here! Lots of nice work. I went to an event at which local cheese makers had a q&a with community members about the cheesemaking process. And then we all tasted cheese. Very educational. Love to see more programs like that- a learning experience in a beautiful space. Great!!
  • The Doodlebig club is really fun and Jennifer is very good with the kids there.
  • One of the only museums in the High Country. The Blowing Rock Art & History Museum (BRAHM for short) features a fantastic mixture of traditional and contemporary American Art as well as well developed History exhibits. Their busy calendar of events also provides a true community center for Watauga County and the High Country as a whole. Great place of you're looking for something to do on a cold winter day!
  • Beautiful art glass exhibit going on
  • Full of beautiful art and a rich history of the area around it.
