Hendersonville Art and Architecture Walking Tours


July 18, 2020 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

    The next Art & Architecture Day in Hendersonville sponsored by the Arts Council of Henderson County will take place on Saturday, July 18. Small groups of six-to-eight will safely social distance their way up Main Street, meeting people in each block from Henderson County’s past who will tell stories of how they helped shape the downtown streetscape.

    Each group will leave the 100 South block of Main Street in intervals of 15 minutes beginning at 9:00 a.m. There will be six tour guides acting as such notables from Hendersonville’s past such as architects Erle Stillwell and Richard Sharp Smith and long-time mayor Al Edwards. The entire tour will take about 90 minutes.

    The Art & Architecture Day in Hendersonville tour is free to attend but reservations must be made. For more details and to reserve a spot for yourself and your friends contact the Arts Council at (828) 693-8504 or at info@acofhc.org.
