Property Description
The C.N. West General Merchandise building was built around 1927 by Clyde and Minnie West using materials from the Old West Brothers Store which, at the time, was located across the street. The two-story frame structure would be ideal for retail, arts or studio space on the ground floor with a live-in area on the second. The downstairs was recently used as a pottery studio.

The property is listed as a contributing structure in the Cowee-West’s Mill National Register Historic District, including five outbuildings: root cellar, garage (with apartment above), log barn, wood shed, and barn. All of the buildings will require complete rehabilitation and all are contributing structures, making them eligible for rehabilitation tax credits.

Preservation North Carolina has previously worked with the Mainspring Conservation Fund to preserve important historic properties in Cowee. Important property documentation has already been completed, including: a home inspection report, well testing, termite inspection, Phase 1 and 2 environmentals, and title insurance.

The property is adjacent to the recently rehabilitated Aunt Vonnie West House and Post Office, Rickman’s General Store, and the Cowee School and Community Center.

 
Additional Notes
Area Information

The Cowee-West’s Mill National Register Historic District is among the richest in the nation. In the mid-18th century Cowee and the Little Tennessee River Valley was the central stage on which would determine the future of two nations: Cherokee and American. The 370 acres in this historic district contain thousands of years of history and continues to resonate in the spiritual life of the Cherokees. Cowee is only about 2 1/2 hours to Atlanta, 2 1/2 hours to Knoxville, less than two hours to the many attractions in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, and less than 45 minutes to Cullowhee, the home of Western Carolina University, and Cherokee. Also nearby is the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad in Bryson City, NC. The area is beautifully situated in the Nantahala National Forest, the largest of NC’s four National Forests. The Nantahala National Forest is comprised of over 500,000 acres with elevations reaching 5,800 feet. There are a wide variety of activities for visitors to enjoy, including whitewater rafting, camping, biking and horseback riding on over 600 miles of trails. Learn more about the Nantahala National Forest by clicking here.
