Hendersonville is a city in Henderson County, North Carolina, USA, 22 miles (35 km) southeast of Asheville.
In 1900, 1,917 people lived in Hendersonville; in 1910, 2,818; and in 1940, 5,381 people lived here.
As of the 2000 census, the city population was 10,420, up fivefold in one century.
It is the county seat of Henderson County.
Like the county, the city is named for 19th-century North Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Leonard Henderson.
Hendersonville and Henderson County are also part of the four-county Asheville Metropolitan Statistical Area,
currently the fifth-largest MSA in North Carolina (that is, as of the 2000 U.S. Census).
The city has an exceptionally beautiful small-city downtown comprised primarily of antique shops and
tourist attractions. Its architecture reflects the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Much downtown revitalization has occurred since the early 1990s.
Significant commercial enterprises that do not serve the tourist trade have relocated almost entirely to the
"strip mall" corridors along U.S. Hwy. 64 East and U.S. Hwy. 176.
The center city has little resident population, but historic neighborhoods may be viewed on the city's
west side and in the Druid Hills neighborhood north of downtown.
Depressed areas are to be found along the city's east side, although redevelopment efforts are
underway along formerly depressed 7th Avenue East.
