USDA Boundary Details

Buncombe County, located in the great state of North Carolina, was established in 1791 and named after Colonel Edward Buncombe, a Revolutionary War hero. Situated in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Buncombe County is home to the city of Asheville, which serves as its county seat.

During the early years, Buncombe County played a crucial role in the development of the state's infrastructure. The completion of the Buncombe Turnpike in 1828 significantly improved transportation and trade within the region by connecting Western North Carolina with Tennessee and South Carolina.

As the railroad industry expanded during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Buncombe County attracted tourists to its picturesque landscapes and thriving art scene. The construction of the Vanderbilt-owned Biltmore Estate, the largest privately-owned home in the United States, was a noteworthy development during this period. Completed in 1895, the Biltmore Estate remains a popular tourist destination and displays the affluence and grandeur of America's Gilded Age.

One fun fact about Buncombe County is that it's often referred to as the "Land of the Sky." This nickname, attributed to writer Frances Christine Fisher Tiernan, reflects the county's picturesque mountainous landscape and clear azure skies, which have long been a draw for tourists and nature lovers alike.
