From the county of Buncombe, Henderson County was formed in 1838. Following a three-year dispute concerning the placement of a county seat, the town of Hendersonville was established in 1841. Situated in the eastern Blue Ridge escarpment of the Southern Appalachian range in Western North Carolina, Henderson County, known as "Land of the Sky," supports a diverse geography, climate, and populace. From its inception, the county has been a vibrant melting pot of cultures, talents, and disciplines. Denizens of the county have included all from Revolutionary War patriots, renowned architects, and tycoons to moonshiners, granny doctors, inventors, and even a famous hog. Henderson County hosts the annual North Carolina Apple Festival and boasts top-producing orchards, floriculture, wineries and breweries, world-class golf courses, and master-planned communities amid accessible natural resources and four seasons of color and clime. The county's spectrum of historic architecture has ranged from log dwellings to Victorian, Romanesque, Neoclassical, and Greek Revival motifs.
