Arts Mount Holly


Art Crawl in October A Big Hit!

Nicely done by artists and Mount Holly merchants. A great way to meet local artists and see their beautiful creations, and to visit the local shops as well. Mount Holly has a lot to offer!


Keep posted for next year’s events which include two art crawls and another Plein Air event.



It’s real and it’s here – have you been? The Northern leg is open – 2 miles gravel and natural path (begin at the bottom of the Mountain Island Dam). Beautiful woods and water district trail.

The trail at Tuck Park is open around the park and some distance on the new paved trail is open up to the Duke property. Try it out!

The section along Dutchmans Creek is in engineering and will be coming soon.

City staff is working on the trail from Dutchmans Creek going north along the river to join the open trail from the MI Dam.



Thank you to Carolyn Helms and Willie Herms of L & E Properties for your investment in Mount Holly.

The property has been updated and is a huge improvement for Mount Holly!
