  • The Carson House is a lovely gem in McDowell County that is a must for any history buff. The grounds are lovely & they offer a wonderful venue called the Jubilee Arbor that can be rented for events. The home has three floors rich with history & artifacts. There is no elevator or lift in the home, so be prepared to climb stairs on your visit. Don't miss this treasure!
  • Beautiful place for a wedding and have alot of antique tools,. Nice place
