Zachary-Tolbert House

Remaining virtually unaltered for 150 years, and on the National Treasure of Historic Places, the house and museum offers an exclusive look inside the lives of the pioneer settlers of Cashiers Valley.

Now home to a museum that exhibits unique “plain-style” furniture created by the builder of the home, the collection is considered to be the largest known grouping of its type. This unique Western North Carolina example of Greek Revivalist Architecture – a European architectural movement introduced in the United States in the 18th century by Thomas Jefferson-has remained intact for more than 150 years without electricity, indoor plumbing, or central heat. This regional treasure transports visitors into the historic and colorful past of Cashiers Valley and a much more gentile way of life and serves as a monument to the pioneer settlers of Cashiers Valley. In addition to viewing the eight-room house, visitors are encouraged to walk the trails, which date back to early times, see the two springs on the property, and view the archaeology exhibits.
