Beech Mountain Land of Oz History
Land of Oz in Beech Mountain was an operational theme park for 10 years from 1970-1980. Hard times hit the park and it closed. Then vandalism and destruction took its toll. In 1990 the area was taken over by Emerald Mountain development. With renovations and hard work now it has become what it is today. Emerald Mountain Properties have private parties at Oz, rentals, sales, Land of Oz, Oz souvenirs, Autumn At Oz Festival, bike and hiking trails and 440 acres to discover and explore.
