Agatha Christie’s classic takes snow-storm-stranded strangers in a boarding house and makes one of them a murderer. Suspects include a newly married couple and boarding house manager, whose suspicions nearly wreck a perfect marriage; a spinster with a curious background; an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef; a retired Army major who claims his car overturned in a drift; and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. In comes a skiing policeman. He arrives; the jurist is killed. To get to the murderer’s pattern, the officer probes the background of everyone present, rattling a lot of skeletons.

Yancey County Dream Home Tour
Oct 6 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Yancey County Dream Home Tour @ Burnsville | North Carolina | United States

From luxury mountaintop living to a historic cabin with period furnishings, the eighth annual Yancey County Dream Home Tour invites visitors into six area homes on Friday, Oct. 6.

Two of the houses are located in the gated Mountain Air community, which sits atop Slickrock Mountain at 4,600 feet in elevation. Burnsville architect Armin Wessel designed both homes. The community is known for its sweeping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Three homes are located on Shoal Creek Road with a view of Mount Celo. One is an 1847 cabin that belonged to a member of the Young family, one of the first families to settle the area.

The final structure on the tour is a tiny home constructed by Buck Stove out of Spruce Pine. The furnished home will be on site at the Yancey Learning Center.

The tour is self-guided. Proceeds support Mayland Community College scholarships.

A new ticket option this year includes lunch at Mountain Air’s Orville & Wilbur’s Bar and Grill. Attendees who choose to upgrade their tickets will also receive a pass to attend a community viewing night at the new Bare Dark Sky Observatory. The observatory, located at Mayland Earth to Sky Park, houses the state’s largest optical telescope for public use.

Observatory passes may be used for a community viewing night anytime; viewing nights will be held on Friday, Oct. 6, and Saturday, Oct. 7.
