Rush Wray Museum, John Wesley McElroy House, and Yancey County History Association, Burnsville – North Carolina Thursdays August 20, 2020

For this week’s North Carolina Thursdays post, I chose to look around Burnsville, Yancey County. There were some places that sounded interesting. I went with Rush Wray Museum, John Wesley McElroy House, and Yancey County History Association – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Wesley_McElroy_House. I thought it was a nice choice for this week’s North Carolina Thursdays post. The museum may have some limitations due to COVID-19 pandemic. Call before planning a visit to see what the limitations are. Going to be interesting as I have to check all three names in searches.
