Why you'd want to live in Hayesville
Hayesville is the main town in Clay County NC. It's located in the mountain region of southwestern North Carolina and was formed in 1861. It partially borders the state of Georgia. The name Clay County was derived from legendary senator Henry Clay who ironically was not from North Carolina. Indians widely inhabited the area and English settlers later inhabited it in late 18th century, 30 years after establishment of the county. Hayesville was made the county seat and the town was named after George W. Hayes, a member of North Carolina General Assembly who worked for Clay County’s establishment.
