The celebration of the newly unveiled Outpost continues. Originally built in the early 1700’s, this landmark will begin its latest chapter as a multigenerational amenity that celebrates the mountain’s colorful history. The Outpost offers a setting for talks, fireside stories, and refreshments on clear evenings under the historic chimney ruin.
The history of the Outpost can be traced back to Fort Thicketty, a storied, revolutionary War-era fort located near Cowpens, SC. The Outpost’s logs were sourced from the fort, which was originally built to protect settlers. However, in May 1780 the fort played a pivotal role in the Revolutionary War and became occupied by British Loyalists under the command of Captain Patrick Moore. Two months after occupation, 600 American patriots led by Colonel Isaac Shelby, advanced on the fort while brandishing arms and making fearsome war cries - said to be the original “rebel yells.” The effort of Shelby and his militia of mountain men caused the loyalists to surrender without a shot ever being fired.
The newly opened Palmer Practice Park has brought much joy to the mountain! This facility remains open daily through all seasons at Balsam! ....And what better season to tee off with than fall?!
It’s always cozy at The Boarding House...and we can’t wait to try Chef Edwin’s dinner menu this week!

“Great Scott!” The Annual Balsam Mountain Trust Party/Fundraiser was a lot of fun and a great success!
“Doc” aka the Executive Director of the Trust, Michael Skinner, most certainly had fun...and in true DeLorean style, of course!
Because in October in the mountains, can you really hear, “Happy #Fall, Y’all!”, too many times?! #NoWay
