Common Room Cottage
This cottage is part of the main complex of the LES Center. It has a spacious sitting area, a dining table, and a full kitchen suitable for preparing meals for small groups. It has a large wooden deck looking out over the forest and offers a magnificent view of Old Screamer Mountain. The Common Room has been a traditional gathering place for residents and is also used by Piedmont College for public events, small programs, and receptions. The Lillian E. Smith House Museum, also in the Common Room Cottage, is a small apartment addition that served as Smith’s final living and work space. It contains her desk and typewriter, various memorabilia, and a portion of her library.
