A Message from
Clay County has often been called “the best kept secret in North Carolina.” With the beautiful Lake Chatuge, grand mountain views, and quiet town of Hayesville, it truly is a great place to live. As commissioners, we strive to preserve the heritage of Clay County as the community grows economically. With growth comes change, but fortunately Clay County hasn’t lost its small-town feel. Whether you’re a tourist or someone planning on becoming a full-time resident, we are here to help! With a tremendous educational system and limitless activities, Clay County offers something for everyone. The secret is out! Please join us as we grow and work to keep Clay County great!
