In the middle of the largest & oldest Arts & Crafts Trail. 2.5 miles up Glades Rd (off 321 Hwy) the big barn on left is ours turn left 300 ft....Ya'll come fer a visit. Paul Murray has dedicated his life to preserving a simpler way of life.....In a traditional 1800 mountain home, artist Paul Murray preserves and portrays the traditions and ways of the Southern Appalachian folk. Capturing the last few true mountaineers, still living as their forfathers did, intense emotion displays the wisdom and respect deserved by the last survivors of our pioneer beginnings. Come live in the past, see tools, cloths, and crafts made by them. "Red" storytells while settin' on the porch with wife Wilma. Here our 84 yr old mountain man, tells of the ways of old, the way they live off the land, of tales and yarns and good old fashioned fun. All apart of the historical venue, all created by selftaught artist Paul Murray. He dedicated his life since age 13, to preserving this American history. He recreated the home and grounds to suit, from the 100 yr old chestnut rails, the old fashioned gardens, log cabins, evestroughs made of things handy and hand made, newspapered walls, hand made rods and curtains, and typical hand made furniture of the era.....Hopefully what you will remember most is the good time you had enjoying old thymes, while discovering the masterful talent of our modern day Rembrandt. Each painting and person has a wonderfully interesting story, that will shed light on the Appalachian people: eg. come view beautiful 103 "Aunt Emily" who's never been more than 6 miles from home, She hangs on the walls in pencil and paint, in a home like the one she may have lived in. Ask the staff about her chicken tree.!!!!!.
