Old Town Swannanoa & Beacon Blanket Tour

September 28, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

$20

Swannanoa was once home to a thriving downtown, known to locals as “The Station.” Bordered by the Beacon Blanket mill and the railroad tracks, Swannanoa’s downtown included cafes, grocery stores, a drug store, a bank, a movie theater, a five-and-dime, and other variety stores. Join us for a walking tour of the old downtown area and the historic buildings that were once a part of the mill town. Learn about the history of this area, and see what’s happening in the old downtown today.

Difficulty: Easy, less than 0.5 miles on paved road
