The John Blue House and Heritage Center has a lot to offer, with opportunities to get lost for hours by the engaging exhibits and activities throughout the complex. Enjoy walking through the historic John Blue House, which shows the rich life of the Carolina residents long past. Built in 1891, it holds many stories within its walls. The structure has 12 rooms, with 12 exterior doors that each feature their own stained glass. After you finish touring the house, take a stroll through the museum, where you can see more artifacts from the past, including antique cars, a fire engine, and a rocking chair President William Howard Taft used.
Everyone loves a good story. Prepare to get your fill at the Storytelling Festival of Carolina, where you can expect to laugh and cry along with the storytellers. If you are brave enough, get on stage to tell a story of your own. This three-day annual event usually occurs in the spring and occurs at the John Blue House complex. There are two days of stories told by professionals, with opportunities for amateurs to perform during the breaks. Additionally, enjoy food, crafts, and storytelling resources at the fair. It is an event that you will not want to miss.
