Little Switzerland, North Carolina

Little Switzerland NC is an unincorporated community in Mitchell County, and was formed in 1909 on eleven hundred acres surveyed from the top of Grassy Mountain by the "Switzerland Company". It began as a private resort on the Blue Ridge Parkway and continues today as a primarily summer vacation destination.    
    The elevations in the Little Switzerland area range from 3200 feet in the village to 4000 feet at the top of Grassy Mountain, offer incredible views of Mt. Mitchell to the west, Table Rock, Hawksbill and Grandfather Mountain to the east, and the valleys of the South Toe, Turkey Cove and the bustling Catawba Valley. Little Switzerland was named because of its sweeping panoramas of deep valleys and distant ranges resembling those of the foothills of the Swiss Alps.
