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.
