Artist Studios for rent at Ghost Town in the Sky in Maggie Valley

Maggie Valley’s Ghost Town in the Sky, one of North Carolina’s most unique amusement parks and family destinations, opened in 2012. Owner Alaska Presley worked diligently on getting the park prepared for a partial opening, Phase One. This phase included the famous chairlift ride to Ghost Town’s all new “Level Fun”. The chairlift takes passengers 3500 feet up and back down the side of Buck Mountain, with breathtaking views of the Smoky Mountains above and the valley below.

Phase Two will be opening late May and will include 6-8 artist studios with 110/220 volt electricity. It is expected that over 12,000 people will visit a day and artists may sell their work directly from their studio. If you are interested please call Jena Sowers at 400.4584 or Larry Elliott at 850.545.4568.

Ghost Town is also looking for secular and religious art to sell in their gift shop, so if you are interested please call Jena Sowers at 400.4584 or Larry Elliott at 850.545.4568.

Not to demean their efforts but....

Ghost Town as a property has been around for years. I remember visiting as a child and I am 55 years old. Ride the chair lift up to a "western" town, saloon girls dancing, gunfights in the street, that type of thing.

Now this appears to be a new bunch reopening/resurrecting the place, and I wish them the best of luck, but thses "projected" daily attendence figures are yet to be proven. Even if true, this does not mean the daily 12,000 give a damn about crafts. This could be a great opportunity for someone, but I would ask several hard questions before commiting in any way.
