Tryon makes room for museum

Commissioner George Baker said he wants to hear a compelling argument for spending approximately $10,000 to relocate the offices. Davis said the space would flow better if the offices moved. He said currently the clerk’s office is a pass through office.

“If you tell us you want us to move, we’ll gladly move,” Davis said. “If you tell us you want us to stay, we’ll stay.”

McCleod said on April 16 the proposal was that the town, the Tryon Downtown Development Association (TDDA) and the Tryon Tourism Development Authority (TTDA) would jointly create the museum for the town. The town was asked to provide the space, she said, with the TDDA and TTDA in charge of writing grants to pay for the costs of renovation.

“There is no money now, but there will be,” said McCleod.
