History

Haywood County came into being over 200 years ago. The county officially separated from Buncombe County in 1808. Over 300 families were living in the territory between Buncombe County and the Tennessee line. Many of these families came to the area because their ancestors served in the American Revolution. These soldiers were introduced to the beauty of the Appalachian Mountains, and many of them returned to settle the region after the war was over.
