The focus of the Appalachian Women’s Museum is to restore the Monteith Farmstead in order to provide a home for the important, often undocumented, contributions of women in the cultural and natural history of the Appalachian region.
The Monteith Farmstead, built in the 1800’s, is located in the town of Dillsboro, North Carolina. According to the Southwest Office of Preservation North Carolina, the site is one of the best preserved examples of a mountain farmstead in the western part of the state.
We are a volunteer organization and rely on private and corporate donations. Currently we need funds to replace the existing porch so that it will be safe for tours into the home. Please consider donating any amount to help create a permanent home for the Appalachian Women’s Museum.
