In praise of the Museum and other Letters to the Editor

Museum is among the

Valley’s best assets

Crown jewels.

Those words often come to my mind as I think of the many positive and inviting features that make Black Mountain such a unique place to live and to visit.

There are, of course, many such jewels in our town that each of us could name. One, among the others that stands out for me, is the Swannanoa Valley Museum.

Now under renovation, the museum not only houses the memories and dramatic events of the past that chronicles the social, artistic, cultural and economic structure of the valley. But it also breathes life into the notion that those who shaped our region are beckoning all of us to a future filled with a heritage just as rich as that we now treasure.

I invite everyone to join in celebrating this marvelous jewel in Black Mountain’s crown and contribute to its success so that we may leave our own imprint for future generations enjoy.
