Built in 1943 on the site of a Civilian Conservation Corps camp, the Cowee School served thousands of students until it was closed as a school in 2012. It continues as an institution of learning.

In 2013, a board of directors was formed to guide the school in a new direction. To date we have successfully offered a annual concert series and classes in a variety heritage arts & crafts in an attempt to preserve the natural and cultural heritage of the Cowee Valley and the region as a whole.

The Cowee School 2014 Concert Series began Saturday, May 10 and runs through October 26. This year's artists include: Red June, Michael Cleveland & Flamekeepers, Buncombe Turnpike, Town Mountain and Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen. Planning is underway for 2015 and promises to be another successful series. Details coming soon.

The Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen show has been rescheduled for Sunday, October 26, at 3:00 p.m. Get your tickets now!
