A magnificent example of Steamboat Gothic architecture, the century-old John Blue House provides a glimpse into an important part of Scotland County’s past: the culture of the rural Carolinas. While it beckons from a distance, the home also revels in close-up. Featuring no fewer than 12 exterior doors, each with its own stained glass light above, this stately queen also sports nine fireplaces and rare double circular porches.

The home, nestled in a grove of pecan trees, is the centerpiece of a collection of structures that tell the story of a different time in the region. These structures include three authentic log cabins, a restored pre-Civil War cotton gin, restored country store, the Scotland County Museum and an operational miniature steam locomotive.

The grounds are always open and are used to host numerous festivals throughout the year.
