The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to assist with the construction of the courtroom performance space inside the historic Cleveland County Courthouse which will serve as a destination hub for travelers to experience the connection between music and the traditions of the Carolina Foothills region. The courthouse will also house the Earl Scruggs Center and will feature permanent interactive exhibits highlighting Earl Scruggs’ contribution to music, and all genres of music from the region and how they reflect local history. The center is estimated to have a $12.8 million impact in the first year, creating 140 jobs.
