Fall Mountain Home Tour to Benefit Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center

The Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center Guild is presenting its 5th Annual Fall Mountain Home Tour, a fundraiser to support educational programs at the not for profit museum.

Mark your calendars for Friday, Nov. 6, 2015 for a fun-filled day in the mountains touring three magnificent homes that combine history, elegance, artistry and natural mountain beauty in the Townsend area. Heritage Center buses will pick up tour participants at the Barn Event Center of the Smokies on Hwy. 321, transport them to each home and then back to the Barn Event Center where they will enjoy a delicious lunch with a complimentary glass of wine offered by Cades Cove Cellars. Tours begin at 9 a.m. and the last tour bus leaves at 1 p.m.

“The 2015 Fall Home Tour to benefit the Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center promises to be a delightful display of architectural styles, décor and natural settings, said home tour event coordinator Mary Ann Everett.

Homes featured on the 5th Annual Fall Mountain Home Tour are:

Fall Mountain Home Tour Richmont Inn

Townsend’s Richmont Inn is the rare B & B that is rustic, yet stylish. Styled as an Appalachian cantilever barn, the Inn’s fourteen themed rooms honor eminent Appalachian people and individual decor depicts their culture and history.
