Community Broadband Survey

The Haywood Broadband Initiative is a collaborative project involving local government, the Haywood County Economic Development Council, the NC Department of Commerce, and various representatives from broadband and cable companies to assess our community’s broadband needs, to identify unserved or underserved businesses and residences, and to create a map of potential demand and service assets, with the goal of attracting service providers offering expanded service and higher speed options. Your participation is essential, so please click on the following link,, at your earliest convenience. Thank you.


History Collection

The Haywood County History Collection is a body of photos and documents from the history of Haywood County. Begun as a contribution to a centennial book marking the 200th birthday of Haywood County, this remarkable collection is available to the citizens of Haywood County here. We hope you enjoy this glimpse into our mountain region's colorful history.
