Brevard, North Carolina

Located in the heart of Transylvania County,  Brevard NC is a wonderful small town that is not only a great place to live but also a renowned tourist destination. In downtown Brevard you'll find all of the familiar touchstones of a classic American small town -an old-fashioned soda shop, a 1930s-era movie theater, even a locally-owned hardware store. And surrounding the city are hundreds of thousands of acres of pristine wilderness, protected forever in the Dupont State Forest, Gorges State Park, Pisgah National Forests. Brevard is also right at the center of one of the most famous waterfall regions in America, in fact Transylvania County is known as "The Land of Waterfalls". Over 250 are located within a short drive of downtown.
   Brevard is also home to a colony of white squirrels that even have their own festival -the White Squirrel Festival and to the Brevard Music Festival, one of the best music festivals in America. Brevard College, a small, private, United Methodist liberal arts college, is the educational centerpiece of Brevard, and its lovely campus is located just east of downtown.
