Thank you for visiting with us. We hope that you will come and bring your family soon and browse our unique art galleries, spend a day or two touring nearby artists' studios, attend one of our area festivals or art events, do a little birding, bike along our scenic roads, catch some trout, take a day trip or longer to beautiful Roan Mountain, or just relax along our Creek Walk.

You might want to stay longer when you see our good schools, locally owned and operated restaurants, library, competitively priced real estate, and friendly people. Take a look around, we're pretty sure that you will want to take a look at the Town of Bakersville, North Carolina!
