Biographical/Historical Note

The Southern Appalachian Historical Association (SAHA) is a non-profit organization based in Boone, North Carolina. It organized in 1951 to operate the annual production of Kermit Hunter's outdoor drama "Horn in the West." SAHA is dedicated to the preservation of the cultural heritage of the Southern Appalachian region through annual productions of "Horn in the West," an outdoor American Revolutionary War drama, the annual Apple Festival, the Hickory Ridge Homestead Museum, an eighteenth-century living history museum, and the Powderhorn Theater.

The Horn in the West grounds include the Daniel Boone Amphitheater, Powderhorn Theater, Daniel Boone Gardens, and Hickory Ridge Homestead. The Daniel Boone Amphitheater was built in 1952 in three months and was designed by John Lippard and four students from North Carolina State University's School of Design. It seats 2,500 and serves outdoor theatre performances, but was designed specifically for "Horn in the West" and its scenery and backdrop requirements. Powderhorn Theater is a smaller indoor laboratory theater originally designed to provide "Horn in the West" cast members a stage to expand their skills in other dramatic areas. It can seat 75 patrons and is used for other drama performances throughout the summer by Horn cast members. Hickory Ridge Homestead is a living history museum designed to display daily life in the eighteenth century during the settlement period. It was founded in 1980 and, in addition to period cabins, includes live demonstrations and workshops in weaving, candle making, hearth cooking, and arts and crafts. Daniel Boone Native Gardens was founded in the mid-1970s and preserves natural plant life of the area. They display native flora of the region and landscaping.

Kermit Hunter (October 3, 1910 - April 11, 2001), the author of "Horn in the West," "Unto These Hills," and forty other historical productions, was born in West Virginia, the son of Otis John and Lillian Farley Hunter. He studied at Ohio State University (undergraduate), Julliard School of Music, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he wrote "Unto these Hills" as his M.A. thesis in 1949 and later completed his Ph. D. in 1955. Hunter received an award for distinguished contributions to American music from the National Federation of Music Clubs and has worked as a professor at Hollins College (Roanoke, Virginia) and Southern Methodist University (Dallas, Texas).
