We were not able to stay for the evening program but enjoyed learning about the center and were able to eavesdrop for awhile during a delightfully spooky presentation of "haints" - ghost stories. Next time we will be sure to take advantage of this excellent resource.

The story teller, Tim Hall, is a treasure. He's an excellent entertainer and teacher of mountain history. My grandchildren, ages 5 and 9, and I made this our last stop of a busy day. After waking up early in the morning to travel to Bryson City, riding the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad until 6:30 in the evening, and listening to... More

Mr. Hall is one of the most unique men my wife and I ever had the privilege of meeting. Chock full of interesting stories and artifacts, the story telling center is the kind of place you will want to bring the whole family to. Sit back and enjoy learning about the mountains heritage from a true mountain man!

We stopped in on a Thursday at 5:30, Mr. Time took us into his shop and started telling very interesting stories, next thing you know, it's close to 7 pm,, time flew by. Had a great time, Tim is a jewel, I highly recommend stopping in.

It was an interesting place to browse while walking along the streets. Nothing really spectacular or worth commenting about.

My boys and I came into the shop to see the items he had on display and ended up joining the evening walking tour. Tim is a natural spinner of yarns and is entertaining. He pulled up an app on his phone to detect para-normal activity. Watching the gullible people soaking that in was as entertaining as listening to Tim.... More

Slow down and sit a spell! The storyteller is a memorable mountain man with lots of stories to tell. Whether you find him recording in his shop or travelling on the train, you won't be disappointed with the tales of mountain life and good values, even humor and a little fright. This is the best memory of our visit to... More

If only every trip could include such a wonderful individual. Would have to say it was the most memorable part of the trip. Was in town for railroad, but would return for another story. Enjoyable for kids of all ages 0 - >100. Please take time out of the rush and madness to enjoy!

We were in town for the Polar Express and stumbled upon this place while roaming town waiting for our train. We were welcomed by Mr. Tim (who had a slight resemblance to Santa)... he welcomed us and the kids in and started making paper chains with the kids. The kids loved him! Mr. Tim had the true spirit of Christmas... More
