The Vetust Study Club

The Vetust Study Club of Asheville received the award in 1962 for its work in carefully selecting pioneer treasures in furnishing the Zebulon B. Vance Birthplace in Buncombe County. The committee did a “thorough, original work of research in seeking out and choosing the pioneer treasures made and used in a mountain cabin from 1790 to 1830. In placing these furnishings appropriately in the five rooms of the Vance Birthplace, the club has helped to preserve these historic objects for the instruction and inspiration of future generations.”
