The McDowell County Chamber of Commerce is proud to operate the McDowell County Visitor's Center.

Nestling off US 221 in Marion, and with a spectacular overlook back to the Blue Ridge Mountains, the scenery is well worth a visit on its own, but the treasures you will find inside will amaze!

We are rightly proud of our community's tradition of producing high quality arts and crafts in all media, and the visitor's center is proud to be a showcase for them, offering you a chance to own a piece of something unique to remind you of your visit.

And of course this is the place to find out information about McDowell County, with brochures and information freely available - find whatever you need at the McDowell County Visitors Center!

Take a look at the photos on this page, and come on down to meet us in person real soon.
