It is with a heavy heart that we tell you that John Garland passed away on February 26, 2017. John was a great businessman and tireless leader. But, what he will be remembered for is his passion for helping anyone in need. He was the first one to say “I got it”. And, when he said that, it was done. He loved his family, his friends, his community. He will be missed by everyone who knew him. In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution in his name to your favorite charity.

The towns of Robbinsville and Lake Santeetlah North Carolina are situated at 2200 feet elevation surrounded by pristine mountain lakes and mile high smoky mountains. Graham County has over 100 miles of wilderness trails with the Appalachian Trail bisecting the county. Whitewater sports include the Nantahala River on our eastern border and Graham County’s own class V rapids of the Cheoah River. The Smoky Mountain National Park is our northern border, and we are in the middle of the Nantahala National Forest. Our natural beauty appeals to those who choose this area. We welcome your visit in the near future.
