The year-long celebration of Tryons 125th anniversary will begin on Thursday, March the 11th.
Area churches and other organizations have been asked to ring 125 strikes of their respective bell(s) at noon as the inaugural event of Tryons quasquicentennial celebration.
The Town of Tryon was incorporated on March 11, 1885 by order of the General Assembly of North Carolina.
Since its founding, Tryon has been a destination point for a veritable Whos Who” of American luminaries in business, politics, the arts and sciences.
Throughout this upcoming year, the Tryon Downtown Development Association (TDDA) plans to celebrate this richly diverse cultural heritage and share the narratives of those individuals whose vision helped shape our community and its identity.
“All area organizations are invited to participate in recognizing this important civic landmark in Tryons history by designating one of their programs this year as a 125th anniversary event,” said Wanda May, chair person of the 125th Anniversary Celebration Committee.
