Fiddlin' 5K Walk/Run for the Arts


Join us on Saturday, April 13 at 9am for the 6th Annual Fiddlin' 5K  Walk/Run for the Arts.  Participants are treated to fiddle music along  the 3.1 mile course that meanders through picturesque scenery on quiet  roads. 

 Testimonial from a runner who has participated in every Fiddlin' 5K event :


"This event has been a great incentive for me to get back into  running after the winter months.  The entry fee is one of the lowest in  the area, the volunteers are friendly, the scenery is gorgeous, and the  course is a little challenging - but not too much."


Hot Doggett


Thanks to all of the great volunteers who helped us have another successful Hog Doggett. You are the best! We could not have done it without you. Mark your calendars for next year's ride, July 13th, 2019.

Rosenwald School Rehabilitation


This photo shows the packed crowd for the latest community talk sponsored by Madison County Libraries and the Rotary Club of Madison County. 

Willa Wyatt gave an update on the progress toward rehabilitation of the historic Mars Hill Anderson Rosenwald School.

Built in 1928, this school is the last one standing in Western North Carolina of the over 5000 Rosenwald schools built throughout the southeast to serve segregated African American students. 

When completed, the building will serve as a community cultural center and an interpretative museum to enhance education and understanding of black history.
