Heritage Village

Nestled in a grove of pecan trees, the John Blue House is the centerpiece of a collection of homesteads that tell the story of a different time in the region. Each of these structures were first built elsewhere by settlers and farmers in the areas and moved to the grounds for presentation.   From the the structures the the homesteads that occupy the land, the grounds provide a glimpse of the culture of the rural Carolinas of the late 1800s.
