Saluda Historic Committee presents free workshop May 10

Published 2:47pm Monday, May 6, 2013

A final free workshop will be held on Friday May 10 at 10 a.m. in the upstairs of the Saluda Library.  Lou Holloway, a Landscape Architect and Manager of the Hendersonville Main Street Program will lead this workshop.  He will be discussing landscaping and why the exterior of our houses and properties matter in a Historic Community. Streetscapes, or the overall appearance of a street, go along way in making a street feel either great or go unnoticed.

This third in a series of workshops on Saluda’s architecture is in preparation of the Saluda Home and Garden Tour, which will be held on Saturday June 1 from 1 – 5 p.m.  Tickets for this event are $20 and will be on sale at Saluda’s Thompson’s Store, Heartwood Gallery and Macon Bank, as well as on the day of the tour, which starts at the Saluda Baptist Church parking lot. This is a walking tour covering about 5 blocks along historic Henderson Street.  Eight homes and gardens will be open for viewing inside and out. In addition to these, four others will be open for viewing: a Rock and Mineral Museum and an artist studio, a front garden flowerbed and a community garden.

The Historic Saluda Committee will use monies from the Home Tour to continue to restore Saluda City Hall and other projects dedicated to preserving Saluda’s past. For more information, go to or email
