By the early 1900s this town was a hub for five different rail lines. Today, the buildings that once served railroad passengers invite you to shop, dine and explore local history. The now restored 1934 Capitol Theater was twinned in the late '70's and shows newly released movies. Main Street Mall and Valley Beautiful Antique Mall offer antiques, collectibles and pottery including the highly collectable Blue Ridge dishware, an industry created in Erwin at the behest of the Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio Railroad. Pottery creation continues today at Stegall's Pottery and Crafts Gallery where guests can interact with artisans at work.
