The Town of Black Mountain was founded in 1893. The official town website states: “At the time of incorporation, the Town of Black Mountain had become a major pathway for westbound immigrants, commercial trade, and the mountain railroad. This strategic location helped establish Black Mountain as one of the most prosperous and picturesque communities in the country.” The economy has changed through the decades, from subsistence farming to manufacturing to tourism-based. With beautiful views, a deep history, and many options for exploration and adventure, Black Mountain is thriving and well poised for the future!
