A village of shops, crafters, family restaurants and diverse festivals, Dillsboro is proud to host annual festivals including the Front Street Arts and Crafts Show, the Summer Arts and Crafts Market, ColorFest, the WNC Pottery Festival, Lights and Luminaries, and an Easter Hat parade, just to name a few.

Dillsboro’s central location is just minutes away from Western North Carolina’s premier attractions and activities — the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Cherokee Indian Reservation, the Nantahala River and the South’s most scenic mountains, rivers and waterfalls. Dillsboro has retained its small town charm through its historic buildings, antique stores, vintage shops and quality crafts, while embracing new businesses. The way to experience Dillsboro is on foot, strolling from shop to shop. Along

the way, you may wander into artisans’ studios to watch the creation of one-ofa-kind, hand-made works of fibers, clay, glass, metal or precious gems. Dillsboro is a Mountain Trout Heritage City and its WNC Pottery Festival was named a Southeastern Tourism Society Top 20 Event. Four new restaurants, an antique shop, and a merchantile have recently opened in the growing town.

Many gift shops and galleries focus on local artisans; and some are working artisan’s studios where visitors can watch work in progress and talk to the artisans. There is plenty of whitewater rafting on the Class 1 & 2 Tuckaseigee River, as well as canoeing, tubing and fishing opportunities as well. Dillsboro is also home to the Jackson County Green Energy Park (JCGEP) which utilizes clean, renewable energy resources to encourage economic development, provide environmental protection, and offer educational opportunities.

SYLVA

Sylva is the county seat of Jackson, a retail and professional center where day-to-day services meet unique history. The town’s development rose with the construction of the Western North Carolina Railroad in the 1880s. The Town of Sylva incorporated in 1889 and became the county seat in 1913. On Feb. 28, 1914, the new Sylva courthouse, located on a hill overlooking Main Street, opened. In 2011, the structure was remodeled and re-opened hosting the Jackson County Public Library Complex and Genealogical Society. Today, the courthouse is reputed to be the most photographed in North Carolina. Sylva has a population of 2,669 (2014) and sits at an elevation of 2,036 feet. Sylva averages about 51 inches of rain per year, nine inches of snow, an average high of 67.9 F and an average low of 42.8 F. In 2014, Sylva was named by “Where to Retire,” magazine as one of the greatest places to retire in the U.S., citing the reasonable cost of living and abundance of outdoor activities. Sylva has been a “Tree City USA in North Carolina,” for the last 12 years. Sylva is a Mountain Heritage Trout City as well.

Sylva is home to Pinnacle Park, a 1,100-acre property owned by the Town of Sylva that has beautiful waterfalls, streams, trails and vistas from the 5,008foot elevation pinnacle. Various entities and organizations in Sylva organize such annual festivals and events. In 2016, Sylva was named among the 10 Cleanest Cities in America by the popular travel website Expedia.com. The 2017 (expected release) movie “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” was filmed in Sylva during the Spring of 2016. Sylva was no stranger to Hollywood as the 1993 blockbuster “The Fugitive,” was partially filmed here. Also in 2016, Sylva began the process to become the N.C. Trout Capital and an “ACT Work Ready Community.” Sylva boasts a wide array of restaurants and now has four breweries in the downtown area. Sylva has three bookstores and an eclectic shopping experience featuring unique clothing, arts, crafts, jewelry, antiques and consignment stores.

Whiteside Mountain is located directly in between Cashiers and Highlands in the southern part of Jackson County. Whiteside Mountain offers majestic views to the east, south and west, along with hiking trails at an elevation of 4,931 feet. For a few days in October, during specific evening hours, onlookers can observe the infamous “Shadow of the Bear,” shown above. tial community adjacent to the college community of Cullowhee. Nestled in the Western North Carolina mountains, the incorporated village maintains its unique setting, both environmentally and culturally, by fostering an active, friendly, and healthy community.

WEBSTER

The town of Webster is a quiet residential community situated on top of a hill overlooking the Tuckaseigee River. It is situated just south of Sylva before entering Cullowhee. The town was created in the mid-1800s with the purchase of an 18-acre tract specifically designated to become the county seat. Within a few years of its settlement, a courthouse was erected. The town was incorporated in 1859. During the construction of the Western North Carolina Railroad, county residents fully expected the railroad to run through Webster. However, the county’s state government representative — said to be fond of his drink — was taken aside at a crucial moment in the voting process and plied with liquor by an individual desiring a more direct route from Sylva to Dillsboro. The location of the railroad later was

a primary factor in the movement to relocate the county seat from Webster to Sylva. Today, the community is home to Southwestern Community College, many fly fishing opportunities along the Tuckaseigee River, (a Mountain Heritage Trout community) and a vibrant community board that recently renovated a World War II monument. A town logo and historic tour/trail was also created. For more information, visit www. townofwebster.org, call 828-631-5103 or e-mail info@townofwebster.org.

WHITTIER

Whittier, Jackson County’s closest community to Cherokee, was another railroad town. The town was incorporated in 1907 and by 1913 boasted a dry store, hotel, physician and surgeon, plus sawmills, lumber yards, three churches and a school. However, with the Great Depression the town lost much of its industry as the demand for lumber declined. By 1993 Whittier’s charter was repealed and today the community is mostly residential. It is home to the Smoky Mountain Country Club. JACKSON COUNTY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE • OUR TOWN •

This year’s special event will feature a spectacular concert by one of the area’s finest bands followed by an impressive fireworks show when the sun goes down. The fireworks will be shot from property in the Sunrise Park district donated for use by Wayne Smith. “We owe Wayne a huge thank you for allowing us to shoot fireworks from his property,” said Jackson County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Julie Hooper Spiro. “People will be able to see them from all over downtown Sylva.” There will be food and fun for all ages at this family-friendly celebration.

We have the best

Fishing Jackson County features

some of the best trout waters anywhere and is home to the nation’s first fly fishing trail - the Western North Carolina Fly Fishing Trail. The trail maps out 15 prime spots to catch brown, rainbow and brook trout in the crystal-clear streams of the Great Smoky Mountains. Visitors had long recognized Jackson County as a premier destination for fly fishing, but

often times weren’t exactly sure where to cast a line. So, the trail was created in 2009 to guide anglers to our best fishing locations. Whether you’re looking for wide-open rivers or secluded mountain streams, the WNC Fly Fishing Trail has you covered. The trail website – www.FlyFishingTrail.com

– provides a map for download, descriptions and GPS coordinates for all 15 spots, plus a gallery for users to upload photos of their catches. It also includes a weekly fishing report. The centerpiece of the trail, and of Jackson County fishing in general, is the Tuckaseigee River. It is the

county’s largest body of water, flowing some 40 miles from southeast to northwest. It has been referred to as “Western North Carolina’s best trout stream for fly anglers,” by The Charlotte Observer. In 2016, the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce spearheaded an effort to become the official Trout Capital of N.C. In June of 2016, legislators on both the N.C. House and Senate floors approved a resolution
