Can you find the

chicken hatch?

 

How about the safe that was

once stolen from the store? 

Where is the "old-fashioned

theft deterrent?" How did the

shopkeeper get items off the

top shelf?

 

The answers to these questions

and some old-timey bargains

can be found with a visit to the

Original Mast Store and

Mast Store Annex

in Valle Crucis. Come out and

discover a little history in a

fun and engaging way.

2020 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Winners

We received 409 contest entries, and 10,925 votes were cast in the contest.

In chosing the winners, we used the following criteria: 1) Voting results, 2) Image quality 3) Only one winning photo per photographer, 4) Region and scene diversity, and 5) Uniquness of the scene. Every year it seems that quality of the photographs gets better making selection of winners harder.
