As one of the popular Asheville Attractions, the Carl Sandburg Home is always a fun place to tour, offering plenty of history, tons of culture and even a pseudo petting zoo as Connemara, the estate as it was called, is home to a herd of champion Chikaming dairy goats. Learn more about this unique place, and start planning your Asheville Vacation. Camping in Western NC is one of the best ways to enjoy the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.

The Carl Sandburg Home offers something for everyone, and visitors can tour the inside of Sandburg's home seeing over 65,00 artifacts on display including intimate documents, manuscripts and items that were dear to the Sandburg family. Thirty minute tours of the home are given throughout the day. In addition to touring the Carl Sandburg Home, visitors can enjoy the more than 5 miles of hiking and natural trails that surround the estate. Sit and ponder as Sandburg did on the infamous rock that he is so renowned for sitting atop in his beloved rocking chair, or explore the barn area and the Chikaming Goat Dairy; at its peak Mrs. Sandburg raised 200 goats on the farm!

In addition to the regular tours and trails, the Carl Sandburg Home has numerous events that take place throughout the year including the Poetry Celebration, Folk Music Festival, Rootabaga Stories, Lincoln Festival and the Home for the Holidays decor tours.
