Author(s):
Abstract:
Goerch visits Mitchell County, an area rich in minerals, rich in scenery, and many other things to attract visitors. The county formed in 1861, and was named for Dr. Elisha Mitchell, who calculated the height of the tallest mountain east of the Mississippi. Bakersville, the county seat, and Spruce Pine are the two largest towns.
