Mission Statement

The Home of the Founders Of Appalachian State University, As well as the first home in the area to facilitate running water and electricity is the physical home of the Appalachian Heritage Museum. With the main goal of educating the generations of generations past as well as sustainable living, organic food production, and Appalachian State University History.

We are currently looking for a curator, and staff to take the museum to the next level. Also Looking for basic volunteers to help renew the museum and begin the process of redesign.

Please note this museum is in no way associated with Appalachian State University.

The current status of the museum is less than desired, Looking for help to get it re-established


The Home of the Founders of Appalachian State University, Once sat in Boone in serious disrepair. In 1989 an orginization founded by Wayne Underwood purchased the home for $1.00, Saving it from a planned removal that consisted of burning the home.

The home was repaired to the best quality possible for the funds available. The home sits at Mystery Hill In Blowing Rock, NC and includes the Native Garden behind the property as part of the museum space, With even more possibility of expansion as creative learning programs begin to expand. The home is currently in poor shape and needs serious repair, as well as more educational programs and documentation of items in the home.

Currently in the process of setting up the board of directors again!
