The Inn at Lost River

2017 Hardy County Heritage Weekend September 22nd, 23rd, and 24th


Welcome to the Heritage Weekend, the 64th annual tribute to our ancestors who cleared the land, built homes, raised families, tended farms, mastered crafts and survived and prospered through a communal tradition of neighbor helping neighbor.   They built the foundation for whom we are today.

The Heritage Weekend Festival is 64 years old this year.  This event started with a dream of a few good people in Hardy County as way of raising money for the public library, the hub of every small town.   A tradition we still honor today.

Each year a historic home is highlighted by preserving its image on a decorative tile.  This tradition was started in 1972, the collection of tiles maybe seen at the Hardy County Public Library.   This year we are honored to have The Inn at Lost River as the 2017 Tile.

Come participate and enjoy the food, music, arts, craft show, car show, home tours, walking tours, civil war encampments, train ride, kids activities, and so much that will take place throughout the weekend in Hardy and Grant counties.

I would  like to take a moment to thank the Hardy County Community, the Hardy County Public Library, The Hardy County Tour and Craft Association Board, our community sponsors, and the property owners who open their homes up for tours.

Hope you have a great time look forward to seeing you again next year!
