Fletcher, North Carolina

The Town of Fletcher NC, which was incorporated in 1989, is located in Henderson County, North Carolina.   The town contains 6.1 square miles of land area and measures six miles in an east-west direction and less than four miles from north to south. Fletcher was incorporated in 1989 by way of an activist movement spearheaded by local politician Sara Waechter, who then became the first interim mayor of Fletcher.
    Fletcher consists of primarily level and at times hilly terrain, which is dominated by Cane Creek and French Broad River and their tributaries. Several major roadways provide easy access to Fletcher. US Highway 25 runs north-south through the center of the Town and is the main thoroughfare for residents. Interstate 26 is located to the west and travels through North Carolina to Tennessee and South Carolina.
 

    Fletcher is also home to a number of great parks, including the extensive Fletcher Community Park, which has youth and adult  baseball and softball fields, multiple soccer fields, a playground, disc golf course, arboretum gardens and walking trails.
