City of Hendersonville, NC | Apple Tree Honda
Historic Hendersonville has its roots back in the 1830s—and the downtown architecture is suggestive of the late 19th century and early 20th century. In fact, Main Street has been beautifully preserved, which makes a visit to downtown Hendersonville a wonderful trip back in time.
Hendersonville is home to more than 13,000 people, as of the 2010 census, but the population has continued to grow since then. The city is located just 22 miles south of Asheville.
There is plenty to see and do in Hendersonville, like the family-friendly Elijah Mountain Gem Mine and the Hands On! Children’s Museum. Residents love to grab a glass of wine at the Saint Paul Mountain Vineyards or Burntshirt Vineyards, then take in a show at the Playhouse Downtown. Local farms to visit include Justus Orchard and Grandad’s Apples.
