Zachary House Improvements

Zachary House Improvements

 Growing up in Cooleemee was like living in a gated community without the fence surrounding the entire three-mile radius of the town.  Erwin Mills took good care of us.  They built us a pool, a movie theater; we had a doctor, dentist, drugstore, Barbour shop, gasoline station and more.  All the homes were rented but then they eventually allowed residents to become homeowners. 

 Many industries that created a cluster of homes used a lot of fencing though and one that had been most talked about in our town was the fencing that encompassed the recreation center.

Outsiders that would come to visit the town would often make comments about the fence surrounding the beautiful Zachary House, as it was an eye sore, looked institutional or like a prison.

It was easy to get used to it living here, it had always been there and we had so many other things going on that it wasn’t noticed or even a bother.

Some people like change and others don’t like change at all.

Over the years the town board has had discussions about taking the fence down.  Their decision to do so was unanimous and the Cooleemee Historical Association was consulted. 

Once the fence was taken down the first thing I noticed was how stately the Zachary House presented itself.  The beautiful structure sits at the top of the hill still presiding over the town. 

 Town Hall’s office is located on the right side of the building with a separate entrance.   

The annual Easter Egg Hunt is scheduled for March 27th, starting at 10:00 am.

Hope everyone can some out to celebrate the new spring season.

Feel free to contact me at www.cooleemeenews@gmail.com or 336.250.1133, would love to hear from you.

Town Hall Moves to Zachary House

COOLEEMEE – The town owns the Zachary House. The Mocksville/Cooleemee ABC board owns the town hall building here.

The town is paying rent, and the ABC Store wants to expand, so it made sense for the town offices to move to the Zachary House.

That move was planned for the beginning of October. But when Town Clerk Steven Corriher went to the office last week, a water line break had flooded the town hall.

Luckily, he had already boxed many of the documents and they were on a table. One box of old minutes was lost, but recordings of those meetings still exist.

“It’s been a dream of mine since I became mayor in 2015 to move to a building that we own,” Corriher said. “It just makes sense.”

The Cooleemee Historical Association is working with the town, and the town hall will occupy a front room of the Zachary House, what was once known as the recreation room. It will have its own entrance.

The town board will meet in the adjacent, larger room.

Corriher said all three entities are looking forward to the change. The town will own the space it occupies. The ABC Store will have room to expand. And the Cooleemee Historical Association hopes to benefit from increased exposure.
