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.
Jack Williams created a map of our public garden site locations throughout the historic district of the Town of Black Mountain. To download the map, please click below.
The parking lot of the Visitors Center is a busy place and the gardens are viewed by many visitors. Thanks to Ann, Peter, Gayle, Jim and Sally for attending to these eye-catching gardens.
Have you driven by the Welcome Sign on the east side of town? If yes, you have passed this garden site. A big thank you goes out to Barbara and Ann for nurturing this garden and making people drive less than the speed limit to view it!
As you come into town from the west on US70, The Welcome Sign and garden greets all who arrive into town. This site is carefully attended to by Jo and she does a wonderful job keeping it beautiful.
Did you know that Boulder Hill landscape was created by and cared for by Susan A. This site was created a few years ago and boulders were donated by our new Mayor Collins.
