      North Fork Valley Tour of the Asheville Watershed – East Side: Appalachian History, the North Fork Community, and the Hunger Games

      THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED...PLEASE LOOK ON OUR WEBSITE FOR A NEW DATE ONCE IT HAS BEEN SCHEDULED. On Saturday, March 28th, the Swannanoa Valley Museum & History Center will host a driving tour inside the closed City of Asheville Watershed to explore part of the once thriving North Fork Valley community. Over 50 families were forced to leave the North Fork Valley in the early 20th century as Asheville enacted plans to convert the area into a much-needed reservoir for city residents. This tour will explore historic homestead sites and cemeteries of this lost community, as well as discuss the watershed's recent use as a film location for the Hunger Games film series. The tour is primarily a driving tour but includes some walking on rough terrain.
      To register, visit the museum's website at
      https://www.history.swannanoavalleymuseum.org/events/, email svmvolunteer@gmail.com, or
      call (828) 669-9566.

      Cost: Advanced registration is required and space is limited to 35 participants. The cost is $50 for museum members and $75 for non-members.
