Welcome to Jackson County! W

We appreciate your interest in this beautiful place we proudly call home. Inside this annual community information publication, you will find everything necessary to plan a memorable extended stay or quick weekend getaway. Who knows? You might even want to stay and establish some new roots! This is the chamber’s 13th annual Our Town magazine. We are proud of Jackson County and its numerous fun-filled events, majestic places to visit, over 400 professional member businesses and incredibly talented, interesting and friendly citizens to encounter. The chamber is the lead producer of the Concerts on the Creek summer music series, the July 4 fireworks festivities, and is a strong supporter of shopping locally consistently. We are honored to provide two scholarships each year to Western Carolina University and Southwestern Community College. The chamber funds a Community Grant Program that has given back more than $144,000 to deserving non-profit organizations in Jackson County since its inception. We host monthly S.T.I.R. Business After Hours events, the popular Chamber Challenge Golf Tournament, and the WNC Fly Fishing Trail. Last year we started a new annual festival celebrating our home being the Trout Capital of N.C. So grab a cup of coffee and flip through these pages to learn more about this amazing place we call “Our Town.” Sincerely,

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 recognizing Jackson County as the “Premier Trout Fishing Destination” in the state. Follow the N.C. Trout Capital on Facebook or at www.nctroutcapital.com. Jackson County contains 4,600 miles of trout streams and receives an annual stocking of 92,800 trout, which is the most of any county in the state. It also features the state’s longest contiguous stretch of N.C. Mountain Heritage Trout Waters. Jackson County is the home of the state record for the largest rainbow trout ever caught. Jackson has 31 public access points for fishing; supports fishing classes for children, is home to the nation’s largest river cleanup day in the country; and plays host to its own chapter of Trout Unlimited. There are now six retail fly shops and more than 25 guides in Jackson County. The Jackson County Chamber of Commerce hosts the second annual troutthemed Hook, Line & Drinker Festival on Saturday, May 19 at the Bridge Park in Sylva featuring fishing vendors, music, craft beer, food and children’s activities.

From left, partners Bernadette Peters and Pat Thomas have owned City Lights Cafe in Sylva since 2011, providing a welcoming place for families, pets, locals and visitors to enjoy a cup of coffee, delicious food and amazing breakfasts, desserts and pastries.

Family From both sides of the cash register, Jackson County chamber merchants are local families Friendly catering to kind customers from near and far The Jackson County Chamber of

Commerce has over 400 members. Out of those members, about a fourth of our membership is comprised of businesses that are owned or operated by family. Whether it be couples, siblings, parents and children, or other ways and means of operating a day-to-day business, we’ve got a deeply felt family-friendly atmosphere on Main Street, both in front of the counter

and behind it. “We are both personally committed to building community within our town,” said Bernadette Peters, owner of City Lights Cafe, along with her partner Pat Thomas. “The cafe has allowed us to accomplish our vision in many ways, but most of all by creating a culture where families and individuals from all backgrounds can feel comfortable and accepted.“

Thomas and Peters are avid supporters of community events and smart growth. Business partners Mark Bryant and John Wermuth opened End of Main, a home provision store, in the summer of 2016. “We meet so many families, both locals and tourists who love our town,” said Wermuth. “The adults love being able to go to our “kid friendly” breweries and


shopping on Main Street.” Wermuth said the small town feel of Jackson County’s towns give visitors a warm, fuzzy feel often overlooked in larger cities. “On Thursday of last week we had a family come into the store. After looking around, the father said ‘Boy, I wish we would have known about Sylva before booking our rooms in Asheville.’ They loved our town and were having fun exploring downtown,” said Wermuth. “We were welcomed on Main Street by fellow business owners and have enjoyed every minute of our life on Main,” Wermuth added. “We’re glad we settled in Sylva.” The Stanberry brothers are virtually famous in Jackson County. Why not? Their family has been providing this community with insurance services since 1980 through Stanberry Insurance Agency Inc. “Being a family owned business since opening in 1980 has always made us focus on the importance of treating our employees and customers like family,” said Kevin and Scott in a joint statement. “Our parents Larry and Susan Stanberry

“Since taking over the business from our parents 17 years ago, we have expanded to three offices and over 30 employees, but we always continue to focus on these core beliefs,” the Stanberry brothers

added. Simply put, that’s how we do it in Jackson County. It’s family friendly from one end of Main Street to the other. Come feel it for yourself, and bring the family!

The Stanberry brothers, (from left) Kevin and Scott, are the owners of Stanberry Insurance Agency Inc., a family-run business in Sylva since 1980. For 38 years, the Stanberrys have remained a family owned, independent insurance agency specializing in Commercial and Personal insurance coverage and Life, Health and Group insurance programs. Stanberry Insurance Agency is proud to serve over 6,000 individual and family clients and in excess of 1,500 business customers. Photo by Kelly Donaldson/Jackson County Chamber of Commerce

New Emergency Room Opens Our friends, members and

Platinum Partners at Harris

Regional Hospital opened the doors on their new Emergency Department last November to begin serving patients. Construction on the project began in October 2015. The facility is positioned on the east end of the hospital and features nearly 17,000 sq. ft., more than quadrupling the size of the previous emergency department. The new space has 15 private treatment rooms. Four of the rooms can be used for patients with psychiatric illnesses awaiting transfer to behavioral health facilities. All of the rooms are designed to become easily expandable to accommodate procedures requiring additional space. One of the rooms is dedicated to receiving patients arriving by ambulance.

“Our state-of-the-art emergency department represents our continued commitment to taking care of our community during emergent situations and beyond with acute, postacute, primary and subspecialty care,” said Steve Heatherly, CEO of Harris Regional Hospital and Swain Community Hospital. The emergency department opening is part of an overall expansion for Harris Regional Hospital which includes the purchase of five new ambulances to serve Jackson County, the completion of the New Generations Family Birthing Center, diagnostic cardiac catheterization, and the addition of 15 physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners serving patients in a number of specialties.
