Community leaders believe that McAdenville has the natural resources and small-town charm to become a new North Carolina hub for outdoor pursuits like hiking, kayaking and mountain biking. The riverfront natural areas will continue to be activated over the years, with the vision of extending the Carolina Thread Trail, a network of greenways and blueways that link 15 counties in North and South Carolina, and connecting to existing trails and parks in town. The vision is that McAdenville’s riverfront will be a prominent segment of the Matthews-Belk South Fork River Corridor, more than 20 miles of greenway and blueways from Spencer Mountain to the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, connecting five towns, several mountain bike parks and many points of interest along the way. Also on the riverfront, plans are in place for the renovation of a historic mill and future commercial and residential development, furthering McAdenville’s role as a year-round destination for recreation, shopping, food and beverage and other fun activities in addition to the annual Christmas Town U.S.A. events. A beautiful new office building, the Dynamo 31, developed from a renovated and repurposed textile mill building has been added downtown, bringing some great businesses to Town with exciting things to offer. As McAdenville continues to evolve, one thing remains the same – its authenticity.
