Newland, North Carolina

Newland NC is the county seat of Avery County and was incorporated in 1913 and has the distinction of being the highest county seat east of the Mississippi. A recently remodeled classical courthouse overlooks a quaint town square, bordered by shops and churches and a memorial to Avery County veterans. Newland is also home to the Avery County Historical Museum.
  
Historically Newland's original name was “Old Fields of Toe” because it is located in a broad flat valley and is at the headwaters of the Toe River. It was also a mustering place for Civil War troops. Newland today is also known for the many Christmas Tree farms which surround this small town.
    The little community of Linville, located at the foot of Grandfather Mountain, takes its name from the Linville River. Linville was originally developed as a summer resort where families from the North Carolina piedmont could escape the heat and mosquitoes that characterize summers in the south.
 

   Nestled at the confluence of Highways 221 and 183, Linville Falls is a convenient stopping point for travelers from all directions. Linville Falls is named after a beautiful two-tiered waterfall located nearby in Linville Gorge.
