About Transylvania County

It doesn't take long to understand why Rand McNally, The Wall Street Journal and National Geographic Traveler named Transylvania County as one of America's top ten places to live, work and play. "Transylvania" in Latin means "across the woods." We are also known as the "Land of Waterfalls" with over 250 in the county.

Businesses are drawn to Transylvania for its pure natural resources and access to an industrious, reliable work-force. Companies are geographically close to customers or potential customers on the East Coast and in the Southeast.
