Blowing Rock Wi-Fi Project


Through a partnership with the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce and Blue Ridge Mountain Club, downtown Blowing Rock gained access to free Wi-Fi service this summer. The service enables owners of laptop computers, smart phones and other electronic devices to access the Internet to surf the web, download images and music, or to connect with their email providers.

“This new service will be available from Rumple Memorial Presbyterian Church to Knights on Main, from the back of Blowing Rock Memorial Park to the intersection of Sunset Drive and Highway 321,” said Jim Pitts, General Manager for Blue Ridge Mountain Club, who announced the new service at the Inn at Ragged Gardens.
