Always Believe volunteered at the Betchler Museum November 8th and had a great time! Christopher Bechtler’s historic 1838 home has now been fashioned into a public museum for this calendar year in celebration of the Town of Rutherfordton’s 225th anniversary. History and architecture enthusiasts alike can revel in the home’s exterior that features late Victorian-era styling, while the interiors tell of its earlier construction date. Architectural details found in the oldest portion of the house include Federal and Greek-Revival mantels and fluted door moldings with corner blocks. Like the homes of Jefferson and Washington, with added resources, Bechtler’s home in Rutherfordton, N.C. can also be a permanent destination where visitors can walk in the footsteps of history and discover the Bechtler vision in person.
