Walk through History: Tabernacle Cemetery
September 15 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Take a guided walking tour of the historical Tabernacle cemetery. This tour brings to life the families who colonized the area after the Revolutionary War, painting a vivid picture of early 19th-century mountain culture. The Tabernacle church and cemetery date all the way back to the 1830s, when the church was a simple log cabin that also served as the first school house in Black Mountain. Nearly 800 valley residents are buried in this sprawling Black Mountain cemetery. Tour guide Robert Goodson will also discuss the significance of nearby Ingram Cemetery. He will detail the lives of many of the people buried in both cemeteries and describe how these valley residents shaped the history of the Swannanoa Valley and western North Carolina.
LOCATION: All registered attendees will receive an email ahead of the event detailing the sign-in location. The event will not take place at the Swannanoa Valley Museum.
