Walk through Weldon's National Register Historic District and see the charming older homes and buildings along Washington Avenue.

Explore the unique
tunnel that runs under Highway 301 located beside the River Falls Park and see the painted mural of native river species. Observe the beautiful Roanoke River where kayakers enjoy the rapids and fishermen come from all over the world to catch striped bass, locally known as "Rockfish."

In our
Historic Business District, you will experience the rebirth of several historical buildings. Visit The Riverside Mill that is housed in the Historic Carolina Cotton Mill and shop for unique Antiques Roadshow Treasures, handmade Carolina products, QVC clothing, peanuts and local honey in a glorious setting. It is the largest Gallery of Craft Arts along Interstate-95.

Shop at the
Farmers Exchange on Washington Ave and buy some 'hoop cheese' or garden seeds that are still being sold out of glass jars. You can see what a store looked like a century ago with antiques that line shelves from the floor to the ceiling; some for sale, others a private collection for you to enjoy.
