Explore Elkin Roundtable discussions

May 3, 2017
Last night, May 2nd, was the first roundtable discussion about the Chatham Property. The attendees were asked for input about the mill and were also provided an update by the company who is doing the deconstruction of the Chatham Mill property. They were shown how the removal of the main building facing Hwy 268 will provide an enhanced area with green space for the remaining buildings to be developed.

Next Tuesday, May 9th, will be the topic of Housing and Population Growth for Elkin. Many who look for a place in Elkin to live have a hard time finding upscale apartment living. Rental housing also goes very quickly and sometimes the only options are to either buy a house or live outside of Elkin.  Many wish to live near downtown and walk to restaurants and shopping and there is quite a demand for this type of housing.

Surry Sonker Trail Adds new Downtown Elkin Restaurant

November 29, 2016

ELKIN, N.C. – The Surry Sonker Trail now has eight stops serving the county’s popular local dessert. Southern On Main recently joined the trail after opening in July in downtown Elkin.

 When Marla Stern, chef and owner of Southern On Main, learned about Surry County’s signature sonker, she called her mother to consult on a recipe.
