About Tryon, NC
The area which Tryon now occupies was originally part of the Cherokee hunting grounds of Western North Carolina. Archaeological evidence dates indigenous peoples' occupation of the site to the end of the last Ice Age, more than 11,000 years ago. Semi-permanent villages appeared in the area by about 8,000 B.C. They later settled in towns with a democratic political structure, religion, domesticated crops, pottery and skilled, powerful archery, and survived through growth of vegetables, hunting and fishing. Each Cherokee village had a peace chief, war chief, and priest.
