The Whistle Stop Mall, is the most unique shopping experience under one roof in Western North Carolina. Established in late 1999, the mall accommodates 14 Retail Stores, 60,000 square feet of antiques, 17,000 square feet of hand-made crafts in the Artisans and restaurants. I spent the day at the Whistle Stop Mall, what and experience! My dad would love this place. This mall is very popular, people come from all over to shop here.
