Buncombe County Government

North Carolina



Nestled in between the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains lies a serene treasure that is Buncombe County. They have been there for more than 200 years and are named after Col. Edward Buncombe, a Revolutionary War hero. Over the years, they have transformed themselves from a rural farming area to a burgeoning metropolis with cities frequently listed as "Top Ten" places to live. They are home to numerous parks, lakes, streams, and other outdoor attractions as well as neighborhoods and communities rich with culture.
