Approximately seven miles northeast (as the crow files) or twelve miles on a narrow, winding mountain road (30 minute drive) from Blowing Rock lies the unincorporated community of Valle Crucis, North Carolina. Its Latin name “Vale of the Cross” was a reference to the convergence of three streams in the valley similar to a cross. Archaeologists have found evidence of 10,000 years of human presence in the valley. Although the first recorded land sale in the area was in the 1700’s, it wasn’t until the mid-1800’s before substantial settlement occurred.
