    Asheville, N.C.     North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory and First Lady Ann McCrory invite you to celebrate the joy of the Christmas season in the Blue Ridge Mountains for the annual Holiday Open House at the Governor's Western Residence.

    "North Carolina is the most beautiful state in the country, and that beauty is on full display in the mountains of Asheville and throughout western North Carolina at this time of year," said First Lady Ann McCrory. "We are excited to celebrate the holidays with visitors as they take in the scenic views and the unparalleled craftsmanship of North Carolina artists."

    The 6,000 square foot home and open pavilion situated atop 18 acres of wooded grounds serves as a retreat for North Carolina governors and their families, and houses government officials visiting the Asheville area on state business. It is also a magnificent meeting venue for various, local civic and cultural groups. The home was donated to the state in 1964.

    This year, the Eastern Band of Cherokee and Karen Taylor of Taylor's Greenhouse will adorn the Residence with personalized trees and bedecked rooms. Visitors can enjoy the crisp, cool mountain air and spectacular scenery from the 3,140 foot high home while appreciating some of the best examples of the region's arts and crafts. Spiced apple cider and delectable baked goods will be provided by Fresh Market.

    The Governor's Western Residence's annual Holiday Open House will be held Saturday, Dec. 6, and Sunday, Dec. 7, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. The public is invited and admission is free.
