Banner House Museum

One of Banner Elk’s founding families, Samuel Henry Banner, built this home in 1865 where he and his wife, Jane Hyder Banner, raised their seven children. His descendants owned this house until the mid-1960’s.  In 2006, The Greater Banner Elk Heritage Foundation purchased and restored the home to its original condition and opened it to the public in 2007.
