Saluda is a very small town in Polk County with a population of only 575 at the 2000 census and is located on the northwestern boundary. Saluda has long enjoyed popularity as a vacation area, second homes, and a place of retirement.

Highly regarded as a very quiet country mountain town, Saluda sits at the top of the steepest regular gauge railroad line east of the Rocky Mountains. Many of the Low Country people seek its pleasant summer climate as well as the sheer beauty of its mountain setting. Saluda is also noteworthy for its fine apple orchards.
Many years ago, before the railroad and the town, this area was known as Pace's Gap, just a crossroad for traders and herders. As Pace's Gap started growing from a bustling crossroads to a more developed town, large, high-ceilinged homes and inns were built for families to spend the summer in the refreshing air of the mountains. In February 1881, the community of Pace's Gap became so large and successful that the people got a chartered document calling the town Saluda, after the Saluda Mountains. The Saluda Mountains were named after the Saluda River, which got its name from an Indian chief whose name sounded like "Saluda" to white men. The town spreads over seven hills with elevations from 2096 feet to 2200 feet.
To actually construct the railway that would pass through Pace's Gap, thirteen miles of grading had to be completed. Captain Charles W. Pearson, who was the chief engineer of the railway, chose to run the tracks up Saluda Mountain instead of running the tracks through Howard Gap due to underground streams. When the tracks eventually reached the top of the mountain it became known, and still is known, as the steepest mainline standard gauge grade in the United States of America.
Need an escape from the heat or a respite from the hectic pace of life? Long for peaceful tranquility, scenic beauty and fresh mountain air? Come discover one of Western North Carolina's hidden jewels. Saluda is a great place to enjoy seasonal beauty throughout the year. Convenient to many wilderness, architectural, civic and otherwise "charming" attractions. Many of the stores that were built years ago still remain and are still doing business. Today Saluda has been recognized as a National Historic District.
