Mars Hill

The town of Mars Hill was built around the educational institution which was to become Mars Hill University. Strolling down the quaint Main Street you can feel the influence of the University that still permeates the small downtown area. The University’s Owen Theatre is the home of the widely acclaimed Southern Appalachian Repertory Theatre which draws theatergoers from Asheville and the surrounding areas. The town has a rich music history as it was the birthplace of Bascom Lamar Lunsford, the “Minstrel of the Appalachians.” Located in beautiful Madison County, Mars Hill is one of several destinations favored by outdoor enthusiasts seeking to enjoy the area’s incredible skiing, fishing, rafting and hiking – including on the famous Appalachian Trail.
