The Carson House

The Carson House historic site project in McDowell County was presented the award in 1970 for the historical restoration project which brought fame to Western North Carolina through its significance and because of the expertise with which it was undertaken. The Carson House, which stands on US 70 three miles west of Marion, was opened in 1964 as the first project of its kind established in the mountain region under private auspices.
