Like the branches of the mighty oak, the work of the Beautification Committee has spread throughout this town. From the Welcome Signs that greet visitors to Black Mountain, to the 20 public garden spots, the Committee works with town groups to realize this shared vision of Black Mountain as a hospitable, welcoming community.
There are 20 public garden sites in Town and are cared for by a committee member. They range in all sizes and in either full sun to part shade and some have their own unique requirements. But they all have one thing in common, they are tended and sustained by the member's love and care.
Thanks to Jack Williams for creating a map of our public garden site locations throughout the historic district of the Town of Black Mountain. This map was updated in August 2021 and can be download below.
This revamp is very close to being finished.
A little background: This was Willie Headley’s garden originally, created 20+ years ago to enhance the Centennial Park sign. Appropriate that it was Willie’s garden because Centennial Park was created as a tribute to the early settlers of the Town of Black Mountain. Willie’s ancestors - the Kerlees - were early pioneers in the Valley.
What has changed:
