Polk County’s Story
Polk County, North Carolina, named to honor the Revolutionary War hero, Colonel William Polk, was formed in 1855 from parts of Henderson County and Rutherford County. Three municipalities (historic Saluda, Tryon, and Columbus) and six townships (Columbus, Cooper Gap, Green Creek, Saluda, Tryon, and White Oak and Columbus) make up the heart of the 234 miles of rural Polk County.
Located in the central Blue Ridge mountains and foothills, the area is known for its mild climate due to the "Thermal Belt," a climatic phenomenon caused by a temperature inversion which results in a belt, rather indefinite in width, wherein the frosts of the valley - or the freezes of the higher altitudes - do not occur. Warm air settles and moderates the temperatures — cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
This phenomenon allows for outdoor activities and events to be enjoyed throughout the seasons. Botanically, the area is rich in native flora. Lakes Adger and Lanier provide aquatic sports and fishing. Some of the clear, cold mountain streams offer good trout fishing in season. Golf, riding and hiking attract devotees who need not await appropriate seasons for such outdoor activities.
Each season brings new adventures in Polk County. Residents discover delicate wildflowers in spring, cool rivers in summer, brilliant foliage in fall, and warming fires in winter. With the waterfalls, mountains and rolling hills of the piedmont, recreation is almost unlimited. Polk County has luxurious golf courses, horse farms, fishing, boating and mountain biking to name just a few outdoor activities.
Equestrian pursuits have nine plus decades worth of heritage in Tryon including steeplechase, dressage, hunter-jumper, and carriage-driving events. The Tryon Riding and Hunt Club, FENCE (Foothills Equestrian Nature Center), and other equestrian organizations host events from March through early December - including the Block House Steeplechase, held by the Tryon Riding & Hunt Club in April for 61 consecutive years.
