HIGHLANDS, NORTH CAROLINA
Highlands, NC is a special place located in the High Mountains of the Smoky Mountain Chain of the Southern Appalachians. So it’s not surprising to learn that Highlands owes its very existence to an unlikely chain of events. Around 1875, two Kansas developers, Samuel Kelsey and Clinton Hutchinson, who apparently knew very little about mountains, looked at a map of the United States and drew a big ”X” connecting New York and New Orleans and Chicago and Savannah. Where the lines crossed, they surmised, would be the next natural transportation hub of the East. (They were not far wrong, but that role fell to Atlanta, just 120 miles to the South.) You don’t pass through Highlands to go anywhere. You have to come here on purpose.
The average elevation of the city limits is 4118 feet which affords cool summers and mild winters. Highlands is surrounded by United States Forest Service Lands, which promotes unspoiled forests and clean fresh air. Highlands is truly unique and a getaway to be treasured. Get out of town less than a mile and you find you are surrounded by parks in the Nantahala Forest filled with waterfalls and flowering laurel and rhododendron of every description. The village has wonderful shops, restaurants with world class food and wine, plays and music. Hiking, fishing, and golf are mainstays in this area. There is a world class Chamber music festival, motoring festival, and food and wine festival every summer.
