Weaverville, North Carolina

Located just north of Asheville about 12 miles, Weaverville NC is a small vibrant community that was incorporated in 1874. Weaverville was the birthplace of Zebulon T. Vance, Civil War governor of North Carolina in 1862-65 and 1877-79, who was born in the nearby Reems Creek Valley.  His birthplace, the Zebulon B. Vance Birthplace, is a state historical site and certainly worth a visit if you are interested in North Carolina history and historical sites.
      Weaverville in the 1800s was home to a number of grand hotels, all now gone. These included
the Dula Springs Hotel and Blackberry Lodge, where Low Country visitors came to escape the heat of South Carolina summers. These destination hotels, as well as Weaverville's natural charm and mountain beauty, helped solidify the town's reputation as a resort destination. This continues to this day, although Weaverville as a destination is greatly overshadowed by nearby Asheville.  

     The town has a lovely park, Lake Louise Park, and a number of excellent restaurants and places to stay, including some world-class bed and breakfasts. The Reems Creek Valley, to the east of the town center, is considered one of the most scenic valleys in the greater Asheville area. Weaverville also has the distinction of being named a Tree City USA every year since 1990.  Weaverville is home to many residents who work in nearby Asheville but also is hosts a number of manufacturing businesses, including a branch of Arvato Digital Services, the world's second-largest replicator of CD's and DVD's.
