Shook-Smathers House

The beautiful and historic Shook-Smathers House was the perfect location for the School, especially since Quay's great great grandmother lived there until her death in 1868. Participants enjoyed tours and singing in the third floor chapel where shaped-note singing was heard in the 19th century! Thanks to the Haywood County Historical and Genealogical Society for providing the house for the School and doing so much work to make it a success!
