And here some other items of interest ....
In 2011 it was Clay County's 150th Birthday (Sesquicentennial) and this year it's Hayesville Centennial and to celebrate we'll have an event every month this year. Events are listed on this page on the right and left side and also on our Calendar page.
Monday, March 11 was started off with a "KICKOFF" party at the Mayor's office in Town Hall the town council and Mayor Harrell Moore starting the festivities. Special guests and a historical review was organized by the "Town 100 Committee".
Our Area: Come and experience Clay County, "the best kept secret in North Carolina" offering a hometown atmosphere. Whether you enjoy hiking or biking on a mountain trail, fishing or boating on Lake Chatuge, shopping for antiques and handcrafted items on the Square and throughout our community, you will enjoy our charming shops and warm and friendly people. Clay County is the second fastest growing county in western North Carolina. Check out our demographics right here.
Our People: Believe it or not,a large number of recent arrivals (since 2000) have come from Florida and many others are "Half-backs" meaning that they are from the Northeast originally then moved south and have now moved here. (me, for example) OK, so one would think OMG these people must be rude, mean and #&@!. Well, surprise, since we left the big cities we have taken on some local traits which are: friendly, helpful, respectful and truly warm-hearted. Amazing what happens when the population per square mile drops from 1000+ to 41. Not to mention only 2 traffic lights and only 1 lane of traffic. In all fairness we also mention that many of us are retired now and do NOT have to rush anywhere.
Our Office: When you are in the area please stop by the Clay County Chamber of Commerce. Located in Hayesville at the four points intersection, just beyond the traffic round-about at the intersection of US 64 Business and North Carolina State Road 69. Helpfull volunteers and area information will provide you with a one-stop-shop for your Clay County experience.
