Sugar Mountain has its own share of history, offering guests with a unique opportunity to experience some of the local folk-lore. Brown Mountain, located just a short drive away from Sugar Mountain, is home to the legend of the Brown Mountain Lights. According to local high-country lore, it is said that a war occurred between two different Native American tribes. At night, when it was safe, the women would light torches and search for their husbands. Either due to attack by the opposing tribe or the frigid mountain air, it is said that many of the women never returned. According to locals, the Brown Mountain Lights can be seen periodically from the Blue Ridge Parkway and the surrounding areas of Sugar Mountain.
