Nebo

(4.2/5 based on 90+ reviews for 2 attractions)
Things to do: nature, wineries
Nebo is an unincorporated community in the Nebo Township of eastern McDowell County, North Carolina. The zip code is 28761.HistoryNebo is named after a Methodist campground that existed before the Civil War. The Western North Carolina Railroad named its depot Nebo after the campground.The community was incorporated in 1909, with the repeal of the charter coming in 1943.AttractionsThe primary attraction in Nebo is Lake James. Lake James State Park is located on the southern shore of Lake James near Nebo.EducationNebo Elementary School is located in the community. It serves children in kindergarten through sixth grade. The school is part of the last junior high system in the state of North Carolina. Before being incorporated as an elementary school, Nebo was a high school. Part of the high school burnt down years ago but the lunch room remained.LocationThe heart of Nebo is considered to be at the Nebo post office, however in recent times Nebo has extended into Burke County due to new construction on Lake James and some residents consider themselves to live in Nebo but reside just inside Burke County. This however is highly debatable as the majority residents of Nebo consider the boundary of Nebo to only cover the land area protected by the Nebo Volunteer Fire Department.
