History of CuRvE

Revitalization Area
The revitalization focuses on the area commonly known as “Old Cullowhee” which extends along Old Cullowhee Road near the back entrance of Western Carolina University.

Cullowhee in History
Some Cullowhee residents recall a period in the 1970’s when Old Cullowhee was a thriving business area with a range of restaurants and nearly 45 businesses.  CuRvE will be working with local business leaders to bring this area to life once again.

Our Beautiful Asset
The area along the Tuckaseigee River is a natural treasure that should be utilized and preserved. Through eco-friendly efforts, we hope to develop parks, trails, and green spaces that will be enjoyed by many generations to come.
