About Hendersonville & Polk County
The Historic Hendersonville and Flat Rock area of Henderson County is located 22 miles south of Asheville, NC on a plateau 2,200 feet above sea level. Henderson County is home to three NC state forests, the Carl Sandburg home and the Flat Rock Playhouse, the state theatre of North Carolina, among other historic, cultural and natural points of interest.
Polk County is a community rich in history and love for equestrian events. Grape vineyards that once lined the hillsides are today making their debut. Rich wine can be found at the wineries in the county. Known as a cool summer resort area in the late 1800s for those living in the heat and humidity of the low country, the small towns of Tryon, Saluda and Columbus are a year-round treat for travelers today.
