Thank you for visiting with us. We hope that you will come and bring your family soon and browse our unique art galleries, spend a day or two touring nearby artists' studios, attend one of our area festivals or art events, do a little birding, bike along our scenic roads, catch some trout, take a day trip or longer to beautiful Roan Mountain, or just relax along our Creek Walk.

You might want to stay longer when you see our good schools, locally owned and operated restaurants, library, competitively priced real estate, and friendly people. Take a look around, we're pretty sure that you will want to take a look at the Town of Bakersville, North Carolina!

Mitchell County Historical Society

The Mitchell County Historical Society is pleased to announce that their Apple Butter Festival will be Saturday, OCTOBER 22nd, at the Creek Walk in Bakersville, NC.

They are actively seeking vendors for the event. If you have a home craft or original work, please consider showing and selling your wares at our Festival. Last year, vendor booths included baked goods, quilts, honey, soaps and aromatics, jewelry, hats, wooden furniture, books and artwork. We have a $15 fee for a 10-foot by 10-foot area to display your work. Please review and complete this application, and return as directed. Spaces are going quickly!

And of course, there will be music...lots of bluegrass and mountain music in the bandstand; many wonderful groups are booked! And, in the middle of it all, will be copper kettles and a crew making wonderful apple butter right before your eyes!

As always, events sponsored Mitchell County Historical Society is free of charge and open to the public. For more information, or to join or renew your membership to the Historical Society, call 688-4371.
