“Transylvania County is located in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains of Western North Carolina, about half way between Asheville, NC and Greenville, SC. The county seat is Brevard, NC. The Transylvania County Courthouse, located in the heart of Brevard, is on the National Register of Historic Places.
Transylvania County is called the “Land of Waterfalls” due to the 250 waterfalls located throughout the county. Whitewater Falls is one of the highest waterfalls in the eastern US. Framed by the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, access to Pisgah National Forest, Gorges State Park and DuPont State Forest (the most visited state forest in NC) provides locals and visitors with opportunities for a range of outdoor activities – hiking, biking, camping, canoeing, tubing, picnicing and fishing.
There is also a rich cultural scene in the country. World-renowned Brevard Music Center, Brevard Philharmonic, Brevard Little Theatre, Brevard Community Band, Paul Porter Center for Performing Arts at Brevard College, Transylvania Choral Society, Transylvania Community Arts Council – and more…”
“…Don’t be deceived by the easy pace and iconic Small Town America ambiance of Brevard – our charming, historic county seat. There is probably something awesome going on right now in downtown Brevard. It might be as simple as a new exhibit at on of the many small art galleries, a beer tasting at a local pub, or a truly spectacular, day-capping combo of a toy shop visit and a chocolate milkshake. Or it could be live music (which occurs with near-daily frequency in the warmer months), a bike or running race, or one of Brevard’s many beloved, family-friendly street festivals.
…wander through the one-of-a-kind local boutiques, grab a delicious meal at a wide variety of local eateries (both casual and upscale), stop by for a little bluegrass on the front porch of the Silvermont Mansion – or in winter, enjoy one of Brevard’s many cool weather and holiday attractions.
Downtown Brevard offers fine, relaxed accompaniment to wilderness exploration and a whole new sort of adventure for any and all inclined to follow their sense through one of American’s Coolest Small Towns…”
