About Tryon

Tryon, North Carolina is called “the friendliest town in the South”. The town of Tryon, laid out in the shape of a circle, was incorporated in the late 1800s as the Spartanburg and Asheville Railroad came to the area.  Many of the Tryon’s historic buildings on Trade Street, as it is today, were in place by 1900, including a general store, a pharmacy and a post office. Tryon NC quickly grew as a resort town, bringing tourists to the area to enjoy the mountain views and good climate.

Tryon bills itself as “The Friendliest Town in the South.” It’s located in Polk County southeast of Asheville along U.S. Highway 176 near the North Pacolet River. This is the central Blue Ridge Mountains and Foothills area, known for its mild climate due to the “thermal belt,” where it’s cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. This allows for year round outdoor activities and recreation.
