Local History as a Tourist Town
Dillsboro's location in the North Carolina mountains makes it a fantastic destination — not only today, but in the last century, too.
The railroad started bringing tourists to Dillsboro in the late 1800s, and not much has changed. Even the storefronts and scenic views have remained virtually unchanged over the last century.
Today, Dillsboro is just minutes from popular outdoor attractions and scenic destinations, like Blue Ridge Parkway, Great Smoky Mountains National Forest, and the Monteith Farmstead, just to name a few.
