History and Yarns

Within every community there are stories that have been passed down through generations. This page is dedicated towards highlighting Maggie Valley’s oral history through yarns and story-telling.

Our community gets its name from Maggie Mae Setzer. Her father, John "Jack" Sidney Setzer founded the area's first post office and it was named after one of his daughters. Each summer, Setzer descendants come from all over the country for a large family reunion in the historic valley.
