They’ve been placed just so that you can sit down and take in the views! The well-maintained Town Square is also a wonderful spot to watch the world go by. Another top pastime is shopping for hand-crafted souvenirs at locally owned stores such as Black Mountain Quilts, the C. W. Moose Trading Company, and the 1928-established Town Hardware & General Store – this one is like stepping back in time! The Mountain Nest Gallery is your window to the regional arts and crafts scene, and you can purchase everything from paintings to jewelry and pottery. Housed inside an old train depot, the equally charming Old Depot Gallery represents over 125 artisans and artists.Food, wine, and beer in the mountains
