Although it had been a hunting ground for various native tribes during the preceding centuries, Black Mountain wasn’t founded until the last decade of the 19th century. The town was initially used as a railroad depot for trains heading through the Smoky Mountains, but its cooler climate and picturesque surroundings ensured that it quickly gained favor as a summer destination for tourists from hotter parts of the South. That said, the town grew slowly until the arrival of the Interstate made it feasible for locals to commute to Asheville for work. These days, Black Mountain is known as a premier destination for extreme sports enthusiasts as well as a family friendly community.
Black Mountain is located in the western North Carolina county of Buncombe. It’s just under 10 miles from the center of Asheville and enjoys easy access to other parts of North Carolina via Interstate 40. The surrounding terrain is characterized by rugged hills that rise up to meet the Great Smoky Mountains and other minor ranges. The vast majority of this land is heavily forested, and the area’s biodiversity is unparalleled. In Black Mountain itself, mid-20th century homes surround a small historic core that’s overlooked by newly constructed vacation homes.
Population and Demographics
Black Mountain has a year-round population of about 8,000, but this figure swells considerably during the summer. Although it’s possible for locals to make the commute to Asheville, many work in the service or tourism industries within the immediate area. Others are retired or semi-retired and live comfortable lives of leisure in the nearby hills. As the city’s profile has risen, many families whose breadwinners can work from home have moved into the area and increased its population of school-age children.
Things to Do in Black Mountain, North Carolina
Black Mountain is an outdoorsman’s paradise. In addition to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the city has access to hiker-friendly green spaces like the Biltmore Forest and Pisgah National Forest. For driving enthusiasts, the nearby Blue Ridge Parkway is among the country’s most scenic byways. Fans of historic architecture can check out the Biltmore Estate, one of the largest residential structures in North America. Meanwhile, Black Mountain’s historic core is anchored by fine dining establishments and newer entrants like Pisgah Brewing Company. Montreat Conference Center beckons corporate visitors from its stunning position in the nearby mountains.
Climate and Weather
Black Mountain has a temperate climate that’s influenced by its relatively high altitude and significant distance from the moderating waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Unlike most other parts of North Carolina, it experiences cold and often snowy winters that can cause serious travel problems. Its summers tend to be a bit cooler and less humid than those in lower-lying sections of the state, but hot weather is still a frequent occurrence. The transitional seasons are generally crisp, and the fall foliage display usually peaks in late October.
