The Appalachian Women’s Museum has kicked off its first fundraiser since reaching an agreement with the Town of Dillsboro to restore and preserve the 1908 Farmhouse at the Monteith Farmstead.
Supporters can purchase “Coal for the Holidays” from Nancy Tut’s, HopBerry, and Bradley’s in Dillsboro, or It’s By Nature, the Chamber of Commerce, and Signature Brew in Sylva. Contributions can also be made at www.appwm.org.
