Welcome to Marshall, NC

We drove up to Marshall one day and I took LOTS of photos!


It is so picturesque that I couldn’t stop myself!


So I put some of them into mosaics to share even more.


How would you like to live on the side of this hill?


Right above Main Street? Do you see it up there?


Hope the road goes around because it would be a steep hike!


Think the wash on the line is dry yet?

The town of Marshall was in the movie ‘My Fellow Americans’ with James Garner, Jack Lemmon, Dan Aykroyd and Lauren Bacall. We watched it after spending the day there and it was fun to see so many of these buildings and the Rock Café.


There are some scenes that were shot in Asheville, too.


My girlfriend Joyce did a post on Marshall and she has some wonderful photos HERE.

I’m joining Katherine’s Corner for Favorite Things.

Have a fabulous holiday weekend!

I'm not familiar with Marshall. Is it near Asheville?
Looks like a fun a scenic place to visit. Great idea to watch the movie after your visit.

Hi Diane,

Thank you for the mention and link. Did you see Hill St.? We began the drive up but it was so steep that we decided to turn around and get back to flat ground. I met the Pastor of one of the churches, who lives on Hill St.) and she said for the first month after moving there she could not drive down Hill St. but driving up was okay.

When the leaves are all off our trees I'll send you a picture of our "hill". Hint: we call our driveway "the ski slope". We take the trash can down towed to the back of my SUV and bring it back the same way. It's no big deal for people who have lived here all their lives, and it's not so big a deal for me anymore.

So beautiful, my friend. Yes, it must be a lovely view from the house on the hill :)

A sweet looking place. Guessing that the owners of that house get to enjoy an exciting view each morning...but, I'm sure that careful steps are made when walking around the place! Do people still hang laundry out to dry? lol

Vee said...

I've never seen that movie...must check into it. I would not like to live on such a steep closed hill, but I like that house a lot!

I love small towns..they are so quaint and full of history and usually really nice people.
What a lovely town that is and I'll have to get that movie. I've never heard of it before but then I'm not big on t.v. or movies much.

They must have a spectacular view from up there! :) AND a nice breeze.

Well, you know I'm going to stop at the post with a movie, don't you? ;) Must watch that one some time.
The views you're sharing are simply stunning, my friend. Catching up on your posts today was simply lovely.

What a charming place to visit. I've never seen 'My Fellow Americans' yet. I'd like to watch it now. It sounds like you had a lovely day.
