Hendersonville

4.3
Hendersonville is a city in Henderson County, North Carolina United States. This city is 22 miles south of Asheville. It is the county seat of Henderson County. Like the county, the city is named for 19th-century North Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Leonard Henderson.The population at the 2010 census was 13,137 and 13,288 at the 2012 census.IntroductionDating to shortly after the founding of Henderson County in 1838, Hendersonville is traditionally known as "The City of Four Seasons". The town has a well-preserved Main Street and adjoining downtown areas with many restaurants, antique shops and boutiques in buildings that housed key local business until the mid-1980s. Its architecture reflects the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Much downtown revitalization has occurred since the early 1990s. Larger stores are almost entirely along the commercial strips extending outward from the downtown along U.S. Hwy. 64 east and U.S. Hwy. 176 and U.S. Hwy. 25. There are historic neighborhoods outside the Main Street corridor including the 5th Avenue neighborhood on the city's west side and the Druid Hills neighborhood north of downtown. Depressed areas are found along the city's east side, but redevelopment efforts are underway in the historic commercial district along 7th Avenue East.
