Hayesville, North Carolina

Hayesville NC, incorporated in 1913,  is the county seat of Clay County, and is located at the far western edge of the North Carolina Mountains. The focal point of the town is the historic county seat courthouse, built in 1888 where many of the county’s festivities are held. Hayesville is also home to the Clay County Historical & Arts Council Museum and the Peacock Playhouse where performances by the local theatrical group, The Licklog Players, can be seen. The museum is housed in the Old County Jail  which was constructed in 1912 and used as a jail until 1972. Another slice of history is The People's Store (68 Church Street), a general store in operation since 1946 and now open as a small museum. Hours by appointment only by calling 828-557-0759.
    Nearby Chatuge Lake, a TVA lake, has over 130 miles of shoreline, much of which can never be developed, and provides wonderful recreational opportunities for residents and visitors alike. This beautiful lake sets the tone for Hayesville. Few mountain cities can boast of such a great natural resource right in their own backyard.
