Welcome to Rutherford County and the quiet pace of a small town community.
Enjoy the summer splendor of majestic Chimney Rock, the golden Chrysanthemums flanking the autumn countryside at a local nursery, brilliant displays of Christmas lights in local towns and communities, and the vibrant Mountain Laurel, Azalea and Dogwood blooms early in the spring.
Located at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains and centered between Charlotte and Asheville, those who visit can enjoy the luxury of being “close to the action, but far from the crowd.”
Our moderate climate makes any season pleasurable and our friendly atmosphere reflects the character of our local citizens and businesses.
