Crossnore Weavers

 

Crossnore Weavers: A Working Museum* is in the rock cottage that holds looms, crafts and fine art. This is where community women have woven pieces that have warmed local children and heads of state. The weaving continues as it has for decades in a room that catches sunlight and imagination. The Fine Arts Gallery upstairs benefits the children’s programs.

 

Labyrinth and Healing Garden

 

Between the Sale Store and Weaving Cottage is a Labyrinth and Healing Garden. It is a welcome place to quietly walk and meditate.

 
Sloop Chapel

Ben Long FrescoThe Sloop Chapel with a Ben Long Fresco
* provides an inspirational experience in the children’s home chapel focusing on a meaningful and masterful old world painting done in the ancient art of fresco, embodying a biblical passage which begins, “Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not.” Children from the school and from master fresco painter Ben Long’s own family served as models for this illumination.
 
Guy Building The Guy Building is an example of ‘adaptive reuse of a historic building’. It is the original Crossnore Hospital, built in 1929. This old building was in the center of the contemporary Sloop Hospital and was securely protected there after 60 years inside the many modern additions. The Crossnore School bought the large abandoned hospital and through careful demolition and restoration, preserved the original hospital as their clinic and adoption center.
 
Beside the Guy Building is an amphitheater for the outdoor drama ‘Miracle on the Mountain’, about Dr. Mary Martin Sloop and the story of the making of The Crossnore School.
