Tryon North Carolina is called "the friendliest town in the South". The town of Tryon, laid out in the shape of a circle, was incorporated in the late 1800s as the Spartanburg and Asheville Railroad came to the area.  Many of the Tryon's historic buildings on Trade Street, as it is today, were in place by 1900, including a general store, a pharmacy and a post office. Tryon NC quickly grew as a resort town, bringing tourists to the area to enjoy the mountain views and good climate.  The Tryon NC equestrian community has a calendar filled with events including the spring running of the Steeplechase, and nearly year-round horse shows at the Foothills Equestrian Nature Center (FENCE).
