The "Seven Sisters" is the common name given to a range of peaks along a ridge the separates the headwaters of the Swannanoa River. It is part of the Montreat Conference Center. The range can also be seen from various spots in the town of Black Mountain, NC (a small town nestled at the foot of Black Mountain Range in Western North Carolina about 17 miles east of Asheville, NC.)

THIS MAP IS NOT FOR SALE.  It was designed for the Town of Black Mountain as a way to view and learn the peak names for the ridge line formerly called Middle Mountain on USGS Maps but more commonly called "Seven Sisters" by the community. It is erected on the dam at Lake Tomahawk in Black Mountain, NC.
