About Us


Cullowhee Revitalization Endeavor, Inc. (CuRvE) was formed when local residents
began coming together to pick up trash along Old Cullowhee Road. Through
these and other community efforts, friends and neighbors formed Cullowhee
Revitalization Endeavor to facilitate the beautification and revitalization of
Cullowhee’s historic center.

In 2007, CuRvE incorporate as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, powered by community volunteers.

In 2012 and 2013, CuRvE hosted a number of open community meetings to
gather citizens’ input into the future and growth of Cullowhee, and hosts Annual State of the Organization Public meetings in February.
