From the crystal waters of Lake James to the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, we are proud of McDowell Countyís natural beauty, low cost-of-living, lack of congestion, and can-do community spirit. Uniquely situated amid 67,000 acres of undisturbed forest land yet close to major cities, McDowell County offers an energetic and growing commercial sector, a budding agri-tourism industry, and a range of events and activities in which to partake.
The Chamber works closely with local and regional governments, area business owners, and community organizations to support economic growth and encourage community involvement. Since 1957, we have been working to create a community that respects its history and natural resources while utilizing innovative ideas and practices to move boldly into the future. See our Highlights of Achievements!
Whether youíre here on vacation, looking to relocate, or just passing through, we invite you to explore McDowell Countyís past and present and encourage you to develop your own list of favorite pastimes. Please drop by the Visitorís Center to let us know how we can help you make your local adventures even more memorable.
