Biscuits and Bluegrass, Cashiers Historical Society

Howard Alley, Whiteside Cove School/Summer Chapel by Tim Barnwell

The Cashiers Historical Society invites you to their Biscuits & Bluegrass fundraiser marking the seasonal reopening of the newly restored Zachary-Tolbert House on Friday, May 25, from 6:00 until 9:00 P.M. 

Chef Kristen Jorgensen from The Barn is preparing farm-to-table, traditional Appalachian-style hors d’oeuvres for all to enjoy. Bennie Queen & The Wild Hogs will be on hand to play their lively brand of bluegrass.  Guests can enjoy their favorite drinks at the open bar while dancing the night away.

This event is also the opening reception for the fourth phase of the “Faces and Places” exhibit at Colonel John’s Cabin, adjacent to the Zachary-Tolbert House. Funds raised will go toward the publication of the highly anticipated coffee table book of the same name.  Guests will have the opportunity to pre-buy this beautiful book at the fundraiser. The book will be the culmination of all four phases of the “Faces & Places” exhibits.

“Faces and Places” is a compilation of photographs by Tim Barnwell, documenting the history and character of Cashiers through his stunning photographs of selected people and places of the region.  Photographs are accompanied by the musings and memories of the depicted faces and places, and together they capture the essence of the area. 

Tickets to this event are $100 each and can be purchased by calling (828) 743-7710 or visiting  Please RSVP by May 16. The Zachary-Tolbert House is located at 1940 Highway 107S in Cashiers. If you have any questions regarding the book or the event, please email [email protected].
