New hours for Kituwah

     The gates at Kituwah are now open Monday through Friday from 9am – 3:30pm.  This action to limit access in the evenings and weekends is necessary to help prevent vandalism and damage from “off-roading” and driving on soggy farm roads.

     If access is needed at another time other than these “open hours”, contact the Tribal Historic Properties Office – Russ Townsend (828) 226-1021 or Johi Griffin (828) 788-1601. Efforts are underway to protect the land and roads at Cooper’s Creek Farm as well.
