Hey, hi, hello …
It’s appropriate that Kinston Hub is the community’s first amenity. It embodies the very spirit of what Kinston is all about – getting together. In fact, you can’t get past The Hub’s entrance without noticing a larger-than-life mural that says just that, “together.” Inside, the idea of togetherness manifests in wonderful ways. Places to sit, to have a party, to share a conversation over a bite and a fresh brew (both coffee and craft beer) at Mountain Cowboy Brewing Company.
Here’s to good company.
… and welcome
The Hub is more than a touchstone for the community. It’s Kinston’s Welcome Center, the starting point for new home shoppers. Where you pick up a brochure and a map and learn more about what’s coming. That means talking to a real person. You’ll want to say hello to one of our helpful community ambassadors. They can give you the lowdown and point you in the right direction of our model homes. Kinston Hub, like Kinston itself, is best experienced in person. We hope to see you soon.
Mountain Cowboy Brewing Co
Fresh, local and did we mention fresh?
Mountain Cowboy Brewing Company is the walkable destination every neighborhood needs. A place to grab your morning coffee and a homemade cinnamon roll, order up tasty snacks when you’re hungry and hoist a frosty cold one, a craft cocktail or glass of wine at happy hour. Local owners, Ron and Michelle Yovich, put a lot of love into what they are serving, along with the freshest ingredients they can find. Food trucks and live musicians will be among the regulars, so there’s always something new to enjoy.
An artful life
Kinston Hub is a creative place. In addition to the “together” mural by Magik Studios, there’s a stylized bear sculpture (that doubles as a comfortable seat) by French artist Eric Valat, a whimsical ceiling installation in the lobby by local artist Jennifer Ghormley that is inspired by Kinston’s artful vibe, and two charming mountain goats in the gathering room by artist Mark Chatterly. The architecture of The Hub itself is inspired.
There’s more to Kinston Hub than meets the eye. Around back, High Plains Environmental Center has created a stunning Demonstration Garden, where Executive Director Jim Tolstrup holds workshops on sustainable, water-wise and native pollinator-friendly planting. There will be educational opportunities for all ages here. It’s also where Mountain Cowboy Brewing Company gets some of their freshest ingredients. And for the rest of us, who doesn’t love simply wandering through a garden to see what’s growing?
