Storytelling at Vance Birthplace


This October, we're bringing you another evening of storytelling with Dr. Delanna Reed. Dr. Reed, a member of the Jonesborough Storytellers Guild, is a professor with the Department of Communication and Performance at East Tennessee State University. 

Join us as we get you in the spooky spirit of Halloween with a few Appalachian ghost stories and others from afar. Dr. Reed will bring these scary tales to life through spoken word. Visitors can bring a blanket or a chair and as the sun sets, take a seat around our campfire. These stories are suitable for ages 12 and up.

This program is free, donations are encouraged, and will be held from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Saturday, October 15th at the Vance Birthplace State Historic Site, 911 Reems Creek Road, Weaverville, NC 28787.
