If you have not visited downtown Cherryville lately, you must go. Named one of North Carolina's top 10 small towns, business is booming with the additions of eclectic local shops, promotion of the arts, and the celebration of rich heritage. The beautifully renovated historic buildings have stunning architectural features that we typically don't see in newer construction. Cherryville has kept its unique, old-fashioned charm while offering a hint of modern flair that will have you revisiting time and time.
Main Street is alive with shops, restaurants, and bars and serves as the social, cultural, and economic hub of the town. Settled in 1792, Cherryville has not forgotten its roots as it boasts a historical museum that offers a look back at the varied past of this picturesque traditional town. The J. Ralph Beam, Jr. Heritage Park and Depot Train Museum tell the story of years past while keeping the town's history alive and thriving.
Cherryville delights with its annual festivals and parades. There is always something enjoyably unexpected that you will find happening year-round along tree-lined Main Street. The local merchants take pride in interacting with the residents and visitors, whether handing out candy to the trick-or-treaters, staying open late during events, decorating for Christmas, or simply welcoming everyone to their establishment to see what's new.
Make time for a visit to see the community's heritage and their vision for the future. Savor the beauty of the Cherry Blossom trees that line Main Street during the Cherry Blossom Festival. Tell the kiddos to drop their letter to Santa in the big red mailbox. Relax on a park bench with a cup of coffee while enjoying the views. Come and explore the appeal of downtown Cherryville and all it has to offer; you will be so glad you did!
