Information for Visitors

With the French Broad River at its feet, the steep rocky edge of a mountain at its back, a railroad passing through, and a pillared court house, Marshall is the epitome of a picturesque mountain town.

Marshall has a rich history with the Buncombe County Turnpike passing through, as the location of notorious Civil War events, and as the hub of Madison County commerce for many years. Old-time stores, dancing to Blue Grass music at the Depot, folks saying "hi" on the street and much more give Marshall a distinctive small-town, welcoming feel.

And Marshall is maintaining that warm, small-town feeling while art galleries, high ceilinged apartments rich with brick and wood, restaurants with fresh menus, and unique stores begin to fill the century-old brick buildings. Spend an evening or an afternoon exploring Main Street and Blannerhassett Island.
