Transylvania County
Transylvania County, North Carolina

The name Land Of Waterfalls was bestowed on Transylvania County in 1912 for good reason; Transylvania contains more waterfalls than any other county in the state. Waterfalls are plentiful in Transylvania County primarily because of the topography and geology of the region. The county lies between the high points of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Piedmont regions of North and South Carolina. Because of the location there is a significant change in elevation throughout the county. Another very important aspect of Transylvania's immense abundance of waterfalls is the amount of rainfall. Transylvania County has the highest average rainfall east of the Pacific Northwest. Brevard averages nearly 70 inches annually and Lake Toxaway, in the western part of the county, averages 80 inches. Though Transylvania's waterfalls are at present visited by tourists, earlier in history they were sites for industries. Settlers used many of the falls in the region for water-powered grist mills, hence came such names as Mill Shoals or Mill Falls. Not all early industries located around waterfalls were legal.

The production of moonshine,' the illegal manufacturing of homemade liquor, was easily concealed near isolated waterfalls. This became a booming business for bootleggers. Today Transylvania's waterfalls brings. tourists from all over.
