About Glenville a Western North Carolina Community
Glenville- A sense of NC Mountain History-Past, Present, Future
Settled in 1827, Glenville, North Carolina was an outpost used as a fort in case of attack from the local tribe of the Cherokee nation. In 1941 the town was destroyed when the Nantahala Power and Light Company built a hydroelectric dam on the Tuckasegee River forming Lake Glenville. Today, scenic Lake Glenville is a mixture of the rugged and the refined. Defined by four distinct seasons, Lake Glenville is a prime resort destination and vacation home to many from the Southeast U.S. who seek the solitude of the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains.
