Weaverville is a town in Buncombe County, North Carolina. Located about 10-15 minutes outside on the western edge of Downtown Asheville along Interstate 26. The population is estimated about 3,981 as of 2016. According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 3.4 square miles and the zip codes in Weaverville are 28787 and 28701. The median home home value is $283,905 ,and the average rent per month is about $889.

Both Weaverville and the Reems Creek Valley have been a beacon to yearning souls since pioneers began settling in what was still Cherokee territory in the 1700s. The natural beauty of the area, the healthful climate and its proximity to Asheville’s urban attractions have made Weaverville the perfect blend of small town and big city. Like Asheville, Weaverville in the 1800s was home to grand hotels, such as the Dula Springs Hotel and Blackberry Lodge, where Low Country visitors could escape the heat and pestilence of Southern summers. Author O. Henry spent some of his last days here, regaining his health before returning to New York City and squandering it again. Weaverville College, later renamed Weaver College, contributed a defined element to our small town for 60 years until it closed in the ’30s. The creation of Lake Louise, then known as Lake Juanita, in 1910 made Weaverville an idyllic destination in the country. A year earlier an entrepreneur by the name of Rex Howland built a trolley line that could carry hotel guests and day visitors the six miles from Asheville to Weaverville’s downtown for 35 cents, and in only 45 minutes.

Six generations of Weaverville natives have been joined by transplants who share their town pride. Since 1990, the city has been named a Tree City USA every year. Today visitors come for our personal lifestyle as well as for the healthful mountain air and scenery. The grand hotels are gone, but the bed and breakfasts are thriving. The arts are blossoming as never before. Good food, good music, good shopping and a good rest are the legacy of Weaverville’s evolution.
