Hazelwood – a community in Waynesville

Until 1995, Hazelwood had its own main street, and was its own little mountain town.  However, due to financial problems, it dissolved and became part of Waynesville. Hazelwood Village as it is now referred, never lost that little town feel.

Although… there have been a few changes.

The grocery store is now a specialty gift and cloth shop, called Vertigo.  When you visit, take time to look at the architecture, especially the original upper windows.  The owners still remember where the produce was kept and where you could find the milk.

The old Hazelwood Elementary school is now the home of Folkmoot USA.

And, among the new cluster of shops still lining the “main” street, is a restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, gift and antique stores, and a new coffee roaster.
