  • About

    The Avery County Historical Museum is housed in the old Avery County Jail, built in 1912. Its purpose is to collect, preserve and display all vital information, photographs and artifacts about people events, and places that make up the history of Avery County and the surrounding areas of the Toe River Valley. Also to provide this information to those seeking to learn more about our rich history, or their own local ancestral roots. Our third book of 2005, Aunt Zona's Web, is now available and in high demand. It is our county manager's grandmother's book and is available at the museum or by contacting Cindy at 828-765-4787.
