The Beal Center 

A Piece of history restored in the heart of downtown Hayesville, NC

Located in the heart of downtown Hayesville, North Carolina, The Beal Center celebrated its grand reopening in 2018 after being restored by the Clay County Communities Revitalization Association with the help of generous donations. The venue, previously known as the Clay County Courthouse, was renamed The Beal Center in honor of Ron Beal, a local benefactor, who helped make the restoration possible. Today the venue and square, which includes the courthouse lawn and gazebo, continue to be managed and operated by the Clay County Communities Revitalization Association (CCCRA), a local nonprofit volunteer organization devoted to preserving and improving Clay County NC for its residents and visitors.

The Beal Center is an excellent venue for any event with its unique architecture and rich history. From weddings and corporate events to community gatherings and performances, the venue offers a versatile and customizable space to fit your needs. The exterior lawn and gazebo provide a beautiful outdoor setting, while the upstairs courtroom space is a premier event center that can accommodate larger groups. The elevator and ADA restroom make the space accessible for all guests. 

The Beal Center, along with its exterior lawn and gazebo, are available to rent for both private and public events. Our mission is to help transform your milestones into cherished memories while providing a wide range of options that meet the needs of every client and budget.
