Postponed: Valley History Explorer Hike #4: Black Mountain (In the Oaks)

June 13 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Details: Join us for a historic tour of the Montreat College Athletic Campus, the former site on In-the-Oaks. We will take a short tour through the house and then walk the grounds of the former Terry Estate located on 89 wooded acres within the town of Black Mountain. Hike leader, Alan Edwards, will share the history of the Terry’s and how they came to build In-the-Oaks, the selling of the property to the Episcopal Diocese of Western North Carolina, the second owners of the property and organizers of Camp Henry, up to Montreat College’s acquisition of the estate in 2001.

Difficulty: Moderate, 2.5 miles
