We took a short drive over to Elevated Mountain Distilling Company in order to support the Women Of Waynesville (WOW). All the proceeds of the distillery tour were given to WOW that night. Dave Angel was our host for the tour. He told us all about Elevated's process and what makes them different. Good whiskey, an interesting tour, and hot dogs from the cart out front made for a fantastic evening.
We took a little side trip to go see the Marion Freight Depot. According to documents sent for historic district designation, the current freight depot was built in 1932 to replace a freight depot on the same spot. It is now used as a community meeting place. The original passenger station was demolished sometime around 1952 when an addition was added to the freight depot to serve the same function.
