Cradle of ForestryThe Cradle of Forestry of America -  The Cradle is a place of people, nature, history and  the future. The story of the birth of forestry in America is told  through exhibits at the Forestry Discovery Center, the Biltmore Campus trail and the Forest Festival Trail. There are nature programs and special events throughout the year for all ages.
Looking Glass Falls - One of  the most well known and often-visited of Transylvania county's falls is Looking Glass, a handicapped-accessible 60-foot cascade located next to U.S. 276. The name "Looking Glass" comes from Looking Glass Rock, where water freezes on its sides in the winter and then glistens in the sunlight like a mirror or looking glass. The falls are 60 feet tall and the area is especially beautiful during the fall season. 
The Heart of Brevard - The city's Main Street Program - is a testament to the fact that this mountain community works together to keep its downtown revitalized and energized. When the program began in 1993, there were thirteen vacant buildings downtown. Today, the Heart of Brevard is filled with active businesses and professional offices; it is clean and green, with lush trees and flowers flourishing on the downtown streets 
Transylvania Heritage Museum  In 1986, hundreds of people signed a petition encouraging the formation of a county museum. The Jim Bob Tinsley Museum, a non-profit organization, was opened in May 1994 in Brevard, NC.  In 2003 the Transylvania Heritage Coalition (THC) was formed. The THM opened in May 2008.

Brevard NC Artist Tim Murray.jpg (154835 bytes) Tim Murray's work encompasses a wide range of media: drawings, paintings, prints, and sculpture. They are linked by their rhythmic qualities and their strength of color and form.  Frequently within a painting there is a drawing;  a piece of sculpture is, at second glance, a drawing in wood/ceramic/metal. 
Judith Duff Pottery - My goal as a potter is to communicate my vision through the strength of the form. I work to create beautiful, functional pieces while seeking individual avenues for self-expression. 
Functional .... Bowls, Mugs, Pots, Stoneware, Kitchenware Mud Dabbers - The Mud Dabbers' name was inspired by the dirt dabbers, insects who build their nests from mud. The smiling Mud Dabber logo, drawn by son John at age 12, symbolizes the joy and happiness the family hopes will be yours in the sharing of their craft.
