Everyone is welcome to dress in their favorite Halloween costumes and meet Popcorn or Fiona, the Conservators Center’s mascots. Tours last 1 hour depending on group participation.    Adults: $16 /    Children: $14 Legends & Lore Explore legends and history as you travel into the darkness with our storytellers.

Tour lasts approximately 1 ½ hours and concludes with hot chocolate and cider.   Parental advisory: Howl-O-Ween Legends and Lore features stories that deal with some adult themes including violence, sex, magic, and religion that may not be appropriate for younger audiences.

(Walhalla)---Local history will be made on Veteran’s Day week here in Oconee County. For the very first time, the famed Vietnam Moving Wall, a half-sized replica of the Washington shrine, will be on display at Blue Ridge Electric Cooperative on Highway 123 between Seneca and Westminster. Jerry Dyar, spokesman for the Oconee County Veterans Council, and, on behalf of Oconee County Government and the local Electric Cooperative said, “It is an honor for our area to host the Vietnam Wall, especially during Veterans Day week from November 9th-13th. The Oconee County Veterans Council with some 1100 veteran members has been Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War and 2017 marks the final year and we feel like we have made a remarkable last impression with “The Wall” being on display here in Oconee County during this most special week”. Dyar added, “The United States lost over 55,000 heroes in Vietnam—21 from Oconee County—and the presence of the Vietnam Wall has served as a steadfast memory and a sense of healing among so many of our Vietnam veterans over the years.” With the Vietnam Wall on display for five (5) days it is the hope of all Oconee County Veterans, Oconee County Government and her citizens, in addition to corporate sponsors, Blue Ridge Electric Cooperative, Davenport Funeral Home and Sandifer Funeral, that those who have never been privileged to view this historic monument will take advantage of a tremendous opportunity this coming Veteran’s Day week.

“Liberty Mountain” tells the story of the settling of the Carolinas by hardy Scots-Irish immigrants who came to America to start new lives, raise families, work and worship, and how they became caught up in the conflict of the struggle for independence from Great Britain. Their story culminates in the Battle of Kings Mountain in October, 1780, which historians agree was the turning point in the Revolution. In an hour of savage hand-to-hand combat, Patriot militiamen defeated a larger and better-trained force of Loyalists, triggering a series of Patriot victories that led to the British surrender at Yorktown a year later.The play will run for 16 public performances, beginning June 30, indoors at the Joy Performance Center in downtown Kings Mountain.
