Old Edwards Hospitality Group is sponsoring the Highlands Historical Society’s “An Appalachian Dinner” on Tuesday, August 8, at the Inn at Half-Mile Farm.
Come enjoy the serenity and charm of the recently renovated Inn and its beautiful surroundings as you enjoy a sampling of foods that were popular on the Plateau decades ago. To buy your tickets, go to highlandshistory.com or call the Society at (828) 787-1050.
On September 14, patrons of the Historical Society will gather for a tented event in the gardens at the Historic Village. Entitled Denim & Dulcimers, this event will celebrate the beauty of the dahlia with good food and toe-tapping music. Celebrants will also have a chance to tour the Historic Museum and take in exhibits.
Be sure to enter your dahlia blooms in the Dahlia Show. Not a gardener? Then come see all of the beautiful dahlias on display at the Dazzlin’ Dahlia Festival on Saturday 16 at the Highlands Recreation Park from 1:00 to 4:00 P.M. See the separate article about the festival on page 50 in this edition of Laurel.
