Each Saturday in June there will be a representative in the Gallery from 2-4 p.m. talking about the work done by the Historic Preservation Committee.

On Saturday, June 14, during the Appalachian Festival sponsored by the Downtown Waynesville Association, Michael Pilgrim will be entertaining Gallery visitors with folk music on a variety of musical instruments from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
