About the event
Center for Pioneer Life to Host Corn Shucking Party
Have you heard your parents or grandparents talk about corn shucking parties?
Yancey County farmer John Hughes fondly remembers these good times. Farm families on
Shoal Creek would work together to help each other out. After a long day of harvesting, they
would take turns meeting in each other’s barn to make sure everyone got their corn
harvested and ready to store for the winter and lightened the load by sharing stories,songs,
and supper. Join us for our second annual corn shucking party at 134 Joe
Young Rd., three miles from downtown Burnsville, just off Shoal Creek Road.
On Saturday, November 18 at 4:00 PM at the Center for Pioneer Life, we will recreate this
fun family activity.
