Welcome to the McDowell County Chamber of Commerce & Visitor's Center!

The Chamber works closely with local and regional governments, area business owners, and community organizations to support economic growth and encourage community involvement. Since 1957, we have been working to create a community that respects its history and natural resources while utilizing innovative ideas and practices to move boldly into the future.

Whether you’re here on vacation, looking to relocate, or just passing through, we invite you to explore McDowell County’s past and present and encourage you to develop your own list of favorite pastimes. Please drop by the Visitor’s Center to let us know how we can help you make your local adventures even more memorable.
