Weaverville is the birth place of North Carolina’s Civil War Governor Zebulon Vance. Chartered in 1875 and named for Michael Montraville Weaver who gave the land for the town, Weaverville sits along the Dry Ridge (named by the Indians for its relatively arid conditions). The Treaty of Holston signed in 1786 cleared the way for settlers to move into the area. Among the first settlers were John and Elizabeth Weaver, parents of the town’s founder. Early residents, friends and relatives soon began gathering for religious camp meetings the south end of College Street. On land first known as the Reems Creek Camp Grounds, a large conference house (built in 183_) housed the Methodist assembly which became the first school in the area in 1840. The town is loaded with history and beautiful homes both historic and new. The eclairs at the Well-Bred Bakery Cafe are delicious. A visit to Main Street feels like coming home. The town hosts the Downtown Go-Around on the first Thursday of every Month from 6-8 p.m. Meet your friends and make new ones! From April through November, Weaverville’s establishments stay open to offer late-night shopping, live music, wine tastings, art openings and more in the heart of Downtown Weaverville!
Weaverville rests between the French Broad River Valley and the high peaks of Mount Mitchell Recreation Area – all rimmed by Pisgah National Forest. A Carolina mountain town with a big heart, homes in Weaverville range from the simple to the sublime.
