Smith-McDowell House Museum
The club planned a joint enterprise with A.B.Tech and Western Carolina Historical Association to restore the grounds surrounding Smith-McDowell House Museum on the A.B.Tech campus to the intent of the original concept design created by Frederick Olmstead. Olmstead was the designer for the Vanderbilt Estate in Asheville. The first two phases have now been completed including the removal of dead trees, shrubs and plants not part of the original design.
Plantings as described in the drawings of 1900 were accomplished in 2014. This year the project will be completed in the spring. A dedication ceremony was held August, 20, 2015. The project is under the direction of Bob Thatcher firstname.lastname@example.org
