What is the Vance Birthplace you ask?

Well friends, the Vance Birthplace is a North Carolina owned state historic site located on Reems Creek Road on the outskirts of Weaverville, NC. This historic site is a pioneer farmstead which features a two-story log cabin “mansion,” an original 1790s slave cabin, and five outbuildings. Furnished as it would have been in the 1830s, the site explores life in early Buncombe County as seen through the lives of the Vance family and enslaved people.

This blog will be both a place to inform the public of the current goings on at the Vance Birthplace, such as our festivals and events, as well as a place to celebrate Western North Carolinian history.
