The home showcases period artifacts and exhibits that transport visitors back to the 1830's and tell the Bechtler story. The Bechtler house is proud to have original gold coins minted by Christoper Bechtler himself as well as a rifle he made. The house also serves as the headquarters of the NC Gold Trail, which connects over 27 counties with historical significance from the NC gold rush. Architectural details found in the oldest portion of the house include Federal and Greek-Revival mantels and fluted door moldings with corner blocks. Tours are free and offered on Fridays from 10am-1pm, and Saturdays 10am-1pm If you need to come on another day please contact The Bechtler House for an appointment.
