The Town of Marshall is located in Madison County NC and nestled in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina on the banks of the French Broad River and is rich in history, scenery, outdoor activities and mountain culture. The drive from Marshall is only a 27 minutes or 19.7 miles to Asheville.

In Historic Downtown Marshall you'll find an historical county courthouse, old-time stores, art galleries, shops with unique home decor and gifts, restaurants cooking with produce from local farms, a Sunday afternoon farmers market on the island, and more. Serving the mountain community, you will find holiday events, county services, and the home offices for the county libraries.

Marshall is also becoming a center for artists. Browse the galleries on the island and downtown, go to classes, exhibits, shows and concerts, often centered on mountain culture.



Marshall is justifiably regarded as one of western North Carolina's leading small towns for work, for play and for life. We are a town that remembers and reveres its roots, its commitment to citizen-centric public service, to the environment and to the connectivity of its neighborhoods and residents.

Marshall is a place one can truly and proudly call “my hometown”, whose people and government work to maintain the warmth that “hometown” promotes. A place where, despite our differences, neighbors know and care about each other and the community and “piece of ground” they share.

Marshall has a rich history with the Buncombe County Turnpike passing through, as the location of notorious Civil War events, and as the hub of Madison County commerce for many years. Old-time stores, dancing to Blue Grass music at the Depot, folks saying "hi" on the street and much more give Marshall a distinctive small-town welcoming feel.

With the French Broad River at its feet, the steep rocky edge of a mountain at its back, a railroad passing through, and a pillared court house, Marshall is the epitome of a picturesque mountain town.
