Shook-Smathers House

  The Shook Museum is housed in the historic Shook-Smathers house in Clyde NC. The original "Shook" portion of the house dates back to between 1810 and 1820. It is the oldest frame structure still standing in Haywood County. Outstanding in its architectural detail, the Shook-Smathers house is a fascinating glimpse into life in North Carolina years ago.  The museum docents give regularly scheduled tours.
