At Home in the Piedmont Foothills

 Part of North Carolina’s appeal is its geographic diversity. The state’s beginnings were tied closely to the earliest attempts at English colonization of North America. Roanoke Island in the northeast, a part of the heavily indented and island-fringed coast, was the site of the famous “lost colony” that vanished sometime after the original landing in 1587. This eastern region retains some of the flavor of colonial life, while the Piedmont region has become the state’s hub of industry and population. The mountains of the west remain the focus of a lively rural culture, including that of an indigenous Cherokee community that has lived in the region for centuries. The Piedmont foothills mark the transitional terrain between the Piedmont Plateau and the Appalachian Mountains, extending from the lower edge of the Blue Ridge escarpment, dropping sharply into the upper Catawba, Yadkin, Broad, Saluda, and Savannah River valleys. It is there that Hickory is located, in the Catawba river basin (the Catawba river was named after the Native American tribes that first settled on the banks, “the people of the river”). The Catawba creates several lakes and recreational areas near Hickory, including Lake Hickory, Lake James and Lake Norman. Hickory is one of the many piedmont towns that credit textiles or furniture for its beginning and early growth. In recent years Hickory has redefined itself and is a vibrant metropolitan area; a banking, commercial, medical and transportation hub. It is now known for its telecommunications industries which produce much of the world’s supply of fiber optic cable. Located just minutes from Hickory is a private estate; 25+ acre horse farm, uniquely designed and immaculately maintained. 6530 Mountain Grove Road, Hickory, NC.
