Abstract:
The Green River provided a barrier to the early settlers of Henderson County. The river is a rushing stream in some places and not more than a creek in others. Currently, the river is being considered as a potential State Natural and Scenic River, but the final decision still has to be voted on by citizens of Henderson and Polk counties.

Abstract:
The first railroad lines were laid in North Carolina in 1833. By the 1880s, a line ran across the state but a business depression hit in 1893 and the railroads were sold in 1899. Despite financial troubles, trains ran the lines until 1949. Parts of the tracks remain, but are covered by the lines of modern diesel trains.
