The Land of Oz

Recommended Posts

A few years ago, I discovered online a little place called The Land of Oz. It was open from 1970-1980 at the top of Beech Mountain in North Carolina. It can now be rented for events and private tours year round. They also hold an annual event call Autumn at Oz. 

 

After three years of talking about it and the timing never being quite right, my best friend and I are attending the Autumn at Oz event this year with two of her friends. We might be a bit too excited to walk down the yellow brick road. 

 

Has anyone here been The Land of Oz when it was open in the 70's or attended an event there? I'd love to hear more stories about this place.

We were so excited to go on Sunday. Unfortunately, the event has been cancelled because of the weather (concern of flooding, high winds and risk of landslides) from Hurrican Joaquin. 

Here are some stories with pictures to tide me over...and maybe encourage other folks to visit this curious place.
