Watauga County Public Library, Free
If you enjoyed our Lost Watauga exhibit at the Jones House in March, here's your chance to hear the backstory on all of those images. Dr. Eric Plaag, the curator and exhibit designer, will take you on a tour through time, from 1885 to the present, discussing buildings and landscapes that have vanished during that period.

The event takes place in the community room at the Watauga County Public Library. Admission is FREE.
