The resort town of Hayesville has Old World Charm to keep you coming back year round. The heart of Hayesville is the little square in downtown that is full of shops, restaurants, museum, exhibits, art galleries, and more! Friendly folks always greet you and numerous activities are year round including farmers market, Friday night Concerts, Weekend Festivals with live entertainment. Hayesville was accepted into the NC Department of Commerce Small Town Main Street program in 2013 and has been hard at work with renovation of the historic buildings. The Main Street America program is a National Trust for Historic Preservation and is an all- volunteer organization with other non-profit community groups. The most recognized to preserve was the old red brick courthouse that was built in 1888 and features a three-story square tower that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, it is used as a special event venue as the Beal Center. Recently Clay County was added to the Blue Ridge National Heritage Craft Trails for their work in hand-made crafts, workshops, studios, and galleries.

Atop the mound sat the Quanassee townhouse, a large public building that served as town hall and council house. At the base of the mound, there was a public plaza for ceremonies. Small homesteads surrounded the plaza as visitors can walk a mile & a half path showing where Indians resided.
