Arts & Heritage

Music has always been a big part of the Fines Creek Community.  The FCCA (Fines Creek Community Association) sponsors the annual Bluegrass Jam to support scholarships for local students.

The arts are blooming in the gym.  Artist in Residence, Susan Livengood, has her art studio in one of the upstairs classrooms.  Another classroom is now an alternative art space display area.

Heritage programming is in the works.  In the old school there is a classroom that has been preserved.  We want donations of photos or histories of Fines Creek.

The FCCA has installed a quilt square on the gym and become part of the WNC Quilt Trail.  The square depicts “The Dead Man in the Creek.”  See the history tab for the story of how Fines Creek got its name.
