The Appalachian Women's Museum is a privately funded 501-3c institution based in Dillsboro, NC. Founded in 2006, the organization's focus is centered on expanding knowledge of the accomplishments of the women of Appalachia. Their goal is to establish a museum (location still to be determined) to preserve the important and often overlooked contributions made to society by the strong, independent women of Appalachia.
The focus of the Appalachian Womenís
Museum is to restore the Monteith Farmstead in order to provide a
home for the important, often undocumented, contributions of women
in the cultural and natural history of the Appalachian region. The
Monteith Farmstead, built in the 1800ís, is located in the town of
Dillsboro, North Carolina. According to the Southwest Office of
Preservation North Carolina, the site is one of the best preserved
examples of a mountain farmstead in the western part of the state.
