Zachary-Tolbert House

Posted by:

The Zachary-Tolbert House is a unique Western North Carolina example of Greek Revivalist Architecture ~ a European architectural movement introduced in the United States in the 18th century by Thomas Jefferson. Surviving intact for over 150 years without electricity, indoor plumbing, or central heat, the Zachary-Tolbert House now serves as a museum exhibiting a unique collection of hand-crafted ‘plain-style’ furniture, a collection considered to be the largest known grouping of its type. A regional treasure, the Zachary-Tolbert House transports visitors into the historic and colorful past of Cashiers Valley and a much more gentile way of life.

The Grounds:

The pristine 5.76 acre site features wooded walking trails that lead to documented points of interest, including springs and streams. more info coming soon…


The Zachary-Tolbert House is open for tours Fridays and Saturdays from 11am – 3pm mid-May through mid-October. The grounds are open daily dawn to dusk.
