The Mast Farm dates back to the 1700’s when Joseph Mast traveled from his home in Randolph County to the fertile Watauga River. Lore states he purchased 1000 acres of fertile ground in trade for his rifle, dog, and leggings. Not a bad deal.
The cabins on the property were built in the early 1800’s and are the oldest habitable properties in North Carolina. Rooms are also available in the main house.
