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 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.
