Valle Crucis, North Carolina

We love rural historic districts like Valle Crucis, North Carolina (we have our own here in Oley, Pennsylvania). Valle Crucis was North Carolina’s first rural historic district and many of its historic buildings have been restored and are still in use.

The unusual name came from Levi Ives, the second Episcopal bishop of North Carolina. When he visited the area in the 1840s he looked into the valley from a hillside, noticed three streams forming the shape of a St. Andrew’s cross and deemed the location Valle Crucis, Latin for “Vale of the Cross.”
