Historic Windover Inn joins Haywood Quilt Trails

Written by 

art quiltsquareThe Haywood County Arts Council will dedicated “Four Little Birds,” the first quilt block at a Haywood County bed and breakfast, at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 25, at The Windover Inn.

The Windover Inn Bed & Breakfast was built in 1910 by James H. and Pearl Howell. The Colonial Revival style home has been a family residence since 1910, and hosted its first guest in 1911 when Mrs. J.H. Howell (Pearl) established it as a tourist home and gave it the name “Windover.”

The Windover joins 24 other locations in Clyde, Maggie Valley, and Waynesville that are part of the Haywood County Quilt Trails project. The concept is based on similar projects in western North Carolina where quilt squares are painted on wood en frames and installed on barns, public structures, shops, and other appropriate buildings around the community. The heritage-based project aims to help communities in Haywood County find and tell their stories.

The website provides block names, locations, photos and short stories about each block. Maps and brochures are available at area Chambers of Commerce and Visitor Centers and at Haywood County Arts Council at 86 N. Main Street, Waynesville.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceMary Harper was quite possibly the first real friend I made when I moved to Western North Carolina.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
