West Region Historic Sites

Vance Birthplace in Fall

North Carolina's mountain region has an interesting and diverse history, and our four historic sites in the western part of the state reflect that varied story.

Whether you choose to step inside the home that inspired Thomas Wolfe's famous novel Look Homeward, Angel, or participate in an old-fashioned corn-shucking frolic on a turn-of-the-19th-century farm north of Winston-Salem, our historic sites in the west offer a combination of family fun and authentic North Carolina that you won't find anywhere else. 

Use the tiles below to learn more about these four remarkable places and plan your trip today.
