Welcome to Marshall
The Town of Marshall is nestled in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina on the banks
of the French Broad River and is rich in history, scenery, outdoor activities and mountain culture.
In Historic Downtown Marshall you'll find an historical county courthouse, old-time stores, art galleries, shops with unique home decor and gifts, restaurants cooking with produce from local farms, a Sunday afternoon farmers market on the island, and more. Serving the mountain community, you will find holiday events, county services,
and the home offices for the county libraries.
Marshall is also becoming a center for artists. Browse the galleries on the island and downtown, go to classes, exhibits, shows and concerts, often centered on mountain culture.
