JOIN US AT THE HISTORIC HENRY RIVER MILL VILLAGE

HISTORY, MOVIES, NATURE, AND MORE!

From it’s days making cotton yarn to its more recent adaptation as District 12 in the Hunger Games films, the Henry River Mill Village offers visitors a step back into the last century and a peak into the rich heritage of western North Carolina mill towns.

Located 1 mile south of Hildebran, NC on I-40 (exit 119), the Henry River Mill Village is only a short drive halfway between Charlotte and Asheville. With tours running daily and special events throughout the year, come join us for a perfect day trip with something for the whole family.

At Henry River, we have families with school aged children, so we understand the obstacles that will arise over the next few weeks with schools being closed due to the concerns over COVID-19. Thankfully, the beauty and history of Henry River can be enjoyed outside and in very small groups, so while we can't handle masses of people, if you need to get out of the house, we are certainly happy to provide a unique learning experience and something to do that doesn't require being in close contact with large groups. Please stay safe and continue to wash your hands and practice safe hygiene routines!
