What's Happening?

Sprawling across nearly 300 acres of natural beauty and adjoining the Nantahala National Forest, lies Silver Run Reserve, the location of the 2020 Cashiers Designer Showhouse (CDS). Silver Run was originally assembled by the civic-minded Neely family as a private family estate nearly 40 years ago. Located within the prestigious southern corridor of Cashiers, Silver Run is in the midst of a revival as it is being transformed into a private, low-density, wonderfully amenitized mountain community. The 2020 Showhouse is a 4,000-square-foot Mountain Modern Cottage, custom-designed by the renowned Meyer Greeson Paullin Benson firm and built by Cashiers’ own Harris Custom Builders. With beautiful mountain and wooded views, and close to the center of the community and The Lodge, the Showhouse is surrounded by tranquility and beauty. Leading local, regional, and national interior designers will grace one of Cashiers' most storied properties with a collective aesthetic vision for a once-in-a-lifetime Showhouse.

The Zachary Tolbert House will be hosting this exciting event throughout the summer from 2-4 p.m. There will be music, refreshments, family-friendly activities such as a Bitty Broom demonstration, the 19th Amendment exhibit. A craft for children to make a basket with Jeffrey Gottlieb, and info about the Monarch butterflies and milkweed plants will be available. Refreshments, no charge
