Since 1928, Tryon (pop. 1,760) has been home to a giant rocking horse, a jumbo version of a popular toy built by the Tryon Toymakers and Woodcarvers. Today’s landmark steed is displayed in downtown Tryon and serves as a billboard for the Tryon Riding & Hunt Club.
North Carolina Tidbits & Trivia
Polk County was formed in 1847 from Rutherford and Henderson Counties. However, since the site of the county seat could not be decided, the act was repealed and the area returned to Rutherford and Henderson Counties in 1849. The county was recreated in 1855 from Rutherford and Henderson Counties. As part of the act, the town of Columbus was born. Polk County is surrounded by Henderson County, North Carolina; Rutherford County, North Carolina; Spartanburg County, South Carolina; and Greenville County, South Carolina.
