Brevard, NC--located in scenic Transylvania County in the mountains of North Carolina--has many historic downtown buildings which have escaped demolition and give character to this unique small town. One among these is the current home of KTCHN...44 East Main Street.
A humble livery stable was the first occupant of 44 East Main in the early 1900’s. Whitmire Motor Company renovated the building in 1925 to house their auto sales and repair shop.
B&B Feed and Seed took over the space in 1928 after Whitmire went out of business at the beginning of the Great Depression. B&B prospered by supplying local farmers and buying their goods until selling out in 1940.
In 1941, Houston Furniture Store moved in and became the longest running tenant, remaining in the same location until 1990! In 1953 a fire destroyed merchandise and damaged the building, requiring extensive repair and renovation.
From 1992 until 2005, the location was home to Grover’s Office Supply.
The current renovation of 44 East Main was the creation of Domokur Architects, using elements such as soaring overhead space, sky lights, massive metal and old hand hewn wooden beams to expertly combine a sense of the historic with the open urban style so desirable today. Today’s inviting space is perfect for KTCHN…a cool and casual place to chill with friends and family, refuel after a hike or bike through Pisgah National Forest, enjoy a cocktail or local brew or host a special party.
