...also known as "Shelton House", in Waynesville, North Carolina.
We had a leisurely tour here today and had ample time to take pictures (without flash, which I wouldn't have used anyway). Our docent was knowledgeable and really enjoyed her work, making our visit extra special.
From the SheltonHouse.org website: Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Charleston style farmhouse was built in 1875 for Stephen Jehu Shelton, a civil war veteran and Haywood County sheriff. Local woodworkers used walnut trees located on the property to craft the home’s fireplace mantles, stairway baluster, doors, as well as a bed, shaving stand and a magnificent wardrobe.
One son, Will Taylor Shelton worked with Cherokee and later Navajo Indians teaching them agricultural skills, helping them become more independent. Prior to his retirement, Will purchased the family home from his father and when he and wife Hattie moved back to Waynesville in 1916, they brought with them an extensive collection of Native American artifacts and crafts — many of which remain in the house.
