Appalachian Women’s Museum

Preserving the stories of ordinary women leading extraordinary lives.

Even though mountain life in western North Carolina shines natural beauty, it wasn’t always easy for those who first settled here. For women in this region, raising families with very little means was especially challenging. The Appalachian Women’s Museum has resurrected the 1908 Monteith Farmhouse in Dillsboro, North Carolina and converted it into a timeless museum in order to voice the stories of these women. Learn about their contribution to the arts, government, education, as well as their lasting impact on this wonderful region. The Appalachian Women’s Museum is open every Saturday, May 1 – October 31, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Additionally, the museum will be open for special events such as Airing of the Quilts. Please visit the website for more details.
