Jones House serves as a cultural center in Boone

An ongoing legacy of community, jam sessions and art that binds

Built by medical doctor John Walter Jones in 1908, the parlored house on King Street originally served as the doctor’s residential practice. In 1987, his family left the house to the town of Boone under one condition: the home must be used as a community and cultural center.

Following that direction, the gallery at Jones House showcases local and regional artists in changing monthly exhibits. Also throughout the year, local musicians gather for weekly jam sessions where all are welcome. Youth participation is encouraged by taking part in programs orchestrated by JAM (Junior Appalachian Musicians). At the same time, adults can sign up for group or individual lessons. Through the seasons, Jones House is available for rent for private events.
