Person and place are often one and the same. Born in a ballroom the night her parent’s cabin caught fire, Eleanor Mailloux danced her way through life and impacted a small village in grand ways. Through entrepreneurship, creativity, and sheer grit, she inspired an Appalachian village to aspire to more. Eleanor founded the internationally recognized restaurant, The Hütte, which reflects her unique legacy to this day.
