Historic Carson House Barn Quilt

Col. John Carson was an Irishman who immigrated  to America in 1773 to start a new life and a new way of life.  What is now McDowell County was considered part of the American frontier.  Carson built Mc Dowell County’s most historic home which has been completely restored, filled with period furnishing and is open to the public.  The home is a certified destination on the NC Civil War Trail.  This property was a stagecoach stop for significant visitors such as Davy Crockett and Andrew Jackson. On the property rests the Carson House Barn which hosts a beautiful barn quilt.
