Welcome to the Historic Carson House!

Located in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, in Marion North Carolina, the Historic Carson House is a moment frozen in time, a testimony to the history of McDowell County NC and beyond.

Built in the late 1700's, the two-story mansion offers a delightful walk through the Carson family's experience in the Revolutionary War, Native American struggles, the Civil War, the North Carolina Gold Rush, the political/economic climate of the times, slavery and plantation life.

Jubilee Arbor
The Jubilee Arbor at the Historic Carson House was finished in 2015 and is an educational and community event space. Built in the same style as a community meeting house of the 19th century, the beautiful beams and classic design make this a stunning location for school picnics and weddings alike.
