How Etowah Got Its Name
This website is dedicated to Etowah
To explore, preserve, and celebrate the history and heritage of
this mountain valley community along the French Broad River and Little Mountain, aka "Misty Mountain" (elevation 2420 ft) in western Henderson County, North Carolina.
Today's internet technology brings opportunity to record and share information. This website is an educational and research endeavor that will discover more over time through
ongoing study and reaching out to elders and others
in Etowah and beyond.
We strive to offer true information, facts, memories, and down-home interesting content for your enjoyment. Explore the Etowah valley, the mountains, the waters, the Native Americans of the region, and the winding road of History from the early days of pioneer settlement. Thank you for visiting.
Material on this website is collected from various research sources, organizations, individual and family contributions. Additional material is original to the website. It is the nature of research that sources do not always agree, that new information arises over time, and the story is told anew. This work is intended to complement and weave into the fabric of other similar, ongoing heritage activities for Henderson County.
With respect, every effort is made to present information in a factual, balanced, and fair manner.
Any possible misrepresentation of fact, mistake, or harm is not intentional
and may be addressed by contacting the website.
