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-storey 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.
