Rocky Mount Mills Welcomes Nash County Travel & Tourism HQ to Eastern NC’s Newest Travel Destination
Travel & Tourism Team Will Occupy Historic House at Falls Road Entrance to Mills Campus
Rocky Mount, NC (April 11, 2018) — Rocky Mount Mills, a picturesque 150-acre mixed use development on the Tar River, announced today that Nash County Travel & Tourism will relocate its operational headquarters and visitor outreach center to the campus.
Travel & Tourism will occupy an 1,800 sf historic home at 1104 Falls Road just across the street from the main entrance to the Rocky Mount Mills campus. In addition to their office operations the group will also welcome visitors looking to learn more about this unique and exciting eastern NC community.
“We’re big fans of the important work Nash County Travel & Tourism does, and we look forward to welcoming visitors from near and far,” says Evan Covington Chavez, real estate development manager, Rocky Mount Mills/Capitol Broadcasting Company. “Rocky Mount Mills is an excellent entry point for visitors wanting to experience our beloved region. After all, we’ve been a destination here on the iconic Tar River for 200 years!”
Capitol Broadcasting Company (CBC) is leading the reinvention of Rocky Mount Mills — the same development team that transformed Durham’s American Tobacco Campus into an award-winning national model for historic rehabilitation.
“We are extremely happy to be a part of the growth and momentum taking place at Rocky Mount Mills,” says Barbara Green, executive director, Nash County Travel & Tourism. “Our new office will be easily accessed from the highway and give us more visibility, beautiful showroom space, private parking and great signage. We look forward to welcoming visitors to our area from such a beautiful location.”
Nash County Travel & Tourism will join Envolve Vision as the first corporate tenants of the campus. Travel & Tourism will be ready to welcome guests to Rocky Mount and the Mills by Q4 2018.
Visitors to the new travel and tourism headquarters will find plenty to do on campus:
