    So it was an amazing collection and fun to explore. Who knew there were cat pinball machines? The owner was an informative guide. All in all it is not that big. It took less than an hour to examine everything. For me not worth the $7.50 except for knowing it goes to support the cat shelter.

    This historical building used to be a gov't building but is now a library. They have wifi and computers and balconies to sit out on and see the beautiful mountain view.

    What a wonderful place! The indoor and outdoor seating certainly makes this an inviting spot to enjoy! WOW...the beers were all very tasty. Our favorite was the peach-apeno! Not only do they satisfy the beer lovers, they also serve ciders! This is definitely a must while visiting Sylva!

    the Old School Antique mall is on Highway 23 between Franklin and Sylva. If you are coming from Franklin it is on your left. If coming from Sylva it is easy to miss, as it is on a curve in the road. Nice Antique Mall, but it is only open in late Spring and thru the Summer. Closed in Winter.

    Worth the work!! We hiked to pinnacle peak and it’s all uphill of course but the view at the top it worth it and the trail is very well maintained!

    Looks like a fun kid play area. I wondered of its safety with a man, who appeared homeless laying on the asphalt within the park. And another homeless man outside the park.

    Nice community park. My wife and I were recently traveling through town & spent some time here. We walked around the perimeter of the park, watched dogs playing at the dog park, spent time at the plaza dedicated to the U.S. Constitution & The Bill Of Rights, and then enjoyed a snack while sitting and relaxing at one of the multiple park benches before getting back on the road.
    Park Amenities include:
    1-Four tennis courts
    2-Paved walking path, winds around the park (Dog friendly, must be on a leash).
    3-Multiple park benches are strategically placed if you need to rest
    4-A small Dog park
    5-Pavilion with picnic tables & grill
    6-Kid’s playground
    7-2 baseball fields
    8-Four outdoor basketball courts
    9-Restroom facilities
    Conveniently located a couple of blocks from downtown Sylva. Open daily. Two entrances, limited parking.

    The gallery is volunteer run. The two artists that were there the day we visited were very friendly and engaging. I really liked the work of Joseph Meigs who I understand has recently passed away.

    It’s not a very big store, but there’s enough to see. There’s something for everyone. You can park your car around the corner.

    The real showcase here is the beautiful old historic home, but they do have two floors of stuff to look at too. Prices were a little on the higher side than I'd expect for the area. But the staff was friendly.
