What three words would you use to describe the charming town of Weaverville, NC?
With a population of 3,200, Weaverville has had a mini growth spurt in recent years. Away from the hustle and bustle of urban life, Weaverville is attracting newcomers because of its small-town, friendly atmosphere.
“Three words that come to mind when I think of Weaverville: One of them is ‘Mayberry,’” says Well-Bred Bakery & Cafe general manager, Laura Bogard. “It’s sort of like that sort of small town feel—kids and young people, old people walking down the street.”
Weaverville offers many events and amenities within minutes of the town’s center, including a county library branch, Buncombe County schools (elementary, middle, and high school), and innumerable shopping, entertainment, and dining options.
“There’s holiday parades and candlelight strolls, and it just feels really cute,” Laura says of the town’s annual events.
The town of Weaverville has its own economic base built upon a range of different business designed around the area’s historical crafts, agriculture, and environment, from Echoview Farm and Fiber Mill to Navitat Canopy Adventures. Weaverville is also home to two local breweries: Blue Mountain Pizza and Brewpub and Zebulon Artisan Ales.
“I think [I would describe Weaverville as] eclectic, too, just because there’s the old timers who’ve been here for a long time. This area’s [also] attracting new people all the time, and so it’s really sort of becoming a little melting pot of lots of great, wonderful people of all walks of life—artists, professionals, families—it’s really kind of everyone,” says Laura.
Weaverville has earned a reputation for keeping its neighborhoods clean and green. It’s garnered the Arbor Day Foundation’s Tree City USA certification every year since 1990, and in 2009, the foundation named it the top “Tree City” in the state.
The town also maintains Lake Louise Park, a hub of local recreation. The small lake is surrounded by picnic tables and shelters, outdoor grills, a playground, and a walking trail. It’s a perfect spot for family and community events, exercise, and romantic strolls.
Continuing the theme of words that describe Weaverville, Laura says, “Maybe not just one word, but ‘small-little-mountain-town.’ You know, super cute.”
