1903 Dougherty House: Appalachian Heritage Museum

Historic Home of the Founders of Appalachian State University

Dauphin Disco Dougherty built this house in 1903 and it was the first home in the area to have electricity and running water. Dougherty founded Appalachian State University in this home, and it housed classrooms and administration offices during the early years. The home is being restored to its original 1903 condition with the help of donations by the community. Guests can tour the home, which is filled with turn-of-the-century furniture, antiques and memorabilia. It truly is an amazing snapshot of life in Appalachia during the early 1900s.
