CORONA VIRUS UPDATE - March 17, 2020 There isn't a whole lot that we can add to the information being made available by sources you are already hearing from, except for one quick note about the SPACE Festival, which is on the calendar, (in pencil) for June 27th. And that is this: We are waiting and watching to see how things develop, and in the background, to the extent that we can, we are still continuing to plan for a June 27th date. When we see our way clear to make a more definite statement - rest assured that we will.

Happy St. Patrick's Day. Be well.

Spruce Pine is a little town found in the mountains of Western North Carolina. The North Toe River runs right through it!
Downtown Spruce Pine has two (count 'em, two!) Main Streets - Oak Avenue and Locust Street. Once you get to hanging around here for awhile, you start to call them Upper Street and Lower Street, 'cuz well, it just kinda makes sense.
Spruce Pine has also got some outlying "lunatic fringe" elements that aren't downtown. Like Hwy 226 - that runs from downtown, past two shopping centers, the hardware store, the ABC store, the WalMart, and then deposits you right at the Visitors Center at the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway... at milepost 330. And there's 19-E, (Siri will call it Nineteeny) which will take you West to Asheville or East to Boone. This will be a great route for daytrips - just as soon as the 4-lane gets finished up! (And it's getting closer by the day!)
Altogether, we make up 28777 - and we want folks to come see us! From our eclectic collection of local restaurants to the beautiful art at TRAC (Toe River Arts Council) to the one-of-a-kind specialty shops you can only find here in the mountains - we know you'll find a stellar experience to call your own.
Soon you will be able to take a look through our Business Directory and see how many reasons we're sure you will love it too!
