For outdoor enthusiasts, mountain biking, hiking, canoeing and fishing opportunities are found throughout Haywood County. The Shelton House, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, offers a look at North Carolina handicrafts, with their collection of wooden crafts, baskets, pottery and mountain country quilts.
