North of Asheville sits the unique, scenic town of Weaverville, North Carolina, home to entrepreneurs and artisans alike. With a thriving downtown district offering an array of businesses and plenty of parking, Weaverville draws visitors from all around to its quaint, picturesque Main Street and lush public spaces. Living in Weaverville offers the best of all worlds: quiet country living just a stone’s throw from a thriving in-town commercial district, with a 15-minute drive to Downtown Asheville.
The Town of Weaverville, with its range of home styles – everything from stately colonials to rambling ranches – started as a community of farmers. John Weaver, the community’s namesake, was one of the first settlers in the region. Families steadily settled in the area over the next 70 years, leading to the construction of several churches and schools.
Outstanding Outdoor Activities Surround Weaverville
Residents and visitors to Weaverville can enjoy two public parks within its jurisdiction: Lake Louise Park and the Main Street Nature Park. Well-maintained areas prized for passive recreation, the parks offer walking paths lined with volunteer-maintained flower beds and educational information celebrating Weaverville’s rich heritage.
For those looking for nearby nature adventures, Weaverville boasts an entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway, miles of local hiking trails, cycling routes, scenic drives, wildlife, and native plants. In addition, the Town of Weaverville hosts several community events throughout the year celebrating its unique roots in Western North Carolina, including a Memorial Day Observance at Lake Louise, Fire on the Lake: July 4th Celebration at Lake Louise, a 9/11 Observance at Lake Louise, a Veterans’ Day Observance at Lake Louise, and a Town Christmas Parade downtown.
Eclectic, Engaging Downtown Weaverville
Residents and visitors can stroll the length of Main Street, enjoying the town’s unique shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as a range of art studios, where area artists welcome the public into their studios for events like the juried Art in Autumn and the Weaverville Art Safari. Some of the art galleries, shops, and restaurants that call downtown Weaverville home include: the Miya Gallery, Mangum Pottery, Shop Around the Corner, Blue Mountain Pizza & Brew Pub, Well Bred Bakery, Aabani Salon & Spa, Glass Onion, Curtis Wright Outfitters, All Good Coffee, Twisted Laurel Eatery & Lounge, Zebulon Artisan Ales and Maggie B’s Wine & Specialty Store.
