Welcome to the Mountains of North Carolina!

Roam the winding mountain back roads, amble the wilderness trails, picnic by the babbling creeks of the rolling terrain of the Blue Ridge Mountains. You'll know you're somewhere special as soon as you roll into downtown Saluda, NC.

As you cross the bridge into town, you'll pass the Green River BBQ, a local watering hole, and follow the Norfolk Southern Railway tracks through town. The public Library, Old Depot station, and City Hall buildings will greet you with the same style they greeted the original townspeople as they rode their horses into town. The many historical buildings are well blended with the newer additions to town to give Saluda that quaint rustic feel with a modern twist that "just feels like home".

Small Town Main Street

Based on the same concepts as the original Main Street program, Small Town Main Street offers downtown revitalization assistance to the state's very smallest communities. With offices in both eastern and western North Carolina, Small Town Main Street serves selected towns throughout the state that lack the resources to hire professional downtown managers. STMS staff work closely with committees within these communities, providing technical assistance and helping facilitate local initiatives in the areas of organization, design, promotion and economic restructuring.

The Small Town Main Street program selects new communities annually through a competitive application process. Eligible communities must have a certified population of less than 7,500.

The Small Town Main Street program also addresses the growing number of small, rural towns that need downtown development assistance but are not likely, due to size or resource limitations, to pursue the regular Main Street program. As in the regular Main Street program, no funds come with the designation. Selected communities receive on-site technical assistance from the Small Town Main Street staff including:

  • Organizational development
  • Market analysis
  • Business assistance
  • Promotions
  • Design
