Spend a Day in Historic Downtown Hendersonville PDF Print E-mail


Historic Downtown Hendersonville is more than just a business district. It is the heart of an economically and culturally vibrant mountain community.


Take any day of the year to walk the 16 blocks that constitute Historic Downtown Hendersonville and you'll find a place bustling with the activity of work and play. Cruise, on foot or in your car, the distinctive serpentine Main Street for an introduction to our mix of specialty shops, art galleries, funky-to-formal restaurants and vibrant entertainment venues all while enjoying free outdoor Wi-Fi. Whether it is serving as the core of the North Carolina Apple Festival over Labor Day weekend, kicking off spring with the Tulip Extravaganza and Garden Jubilee or highlighting the holidays with the Holiday Tree Lighting, downtown is the year round center for celebrating the community's heritage and diversity.


Downtown Hendersonville's vitality is no accident. The community has worked together to promote the district while preserving the area's history and unique architectural character. In 1988, the Historic Downtown district was entered into the National Register of Historic Places and last year marked the 25th anniversary of Hendersonville's designation as a member of the North Carolina Main Street Program. Today, Historic Downtown Hendersonville is one of 61 such organizations in North Carolina to hold membership in the state Main Street Program. The state and local programs are part of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and are dedicated to the revitalization and success of Hendersonville's central business district.
