How Etowah Got Its Name
This website is dedicated to Etowah and the surrounding mountain valley
To explore, preserve, and celebrate the history and heritage of this 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 interesting content for your enjoyment.
