Preservation and Heritage
History has been in the making for centuries here in McDowell and Burke counties where streams meander, waterfalls plunge, and views penetrate the soul. From Native American tribes to European explorers to valiant American soldiers marching to defend freedom, the inhabitants of this environmentally rich region continue to treasure the unique natural resources. Stewardship is a welcome responsibility for 1780 landowners.
In a historic measure made possible by the cooperative conservation efforts of landowners, Crescent, the National Park Service, and other partners, three and a half miles of the famed Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail will wind through the 1780 community as a linear park, ultimately connecting to the Pisgah National Forest, Linville Gorge, and the Mountains to Sea trail. In fact, the community is named for the year that a thousand patriot “Overmountain Men” marched through the area on their way to victory at the Battle of Kings Mountain September 29-30, 1780.
Crescent Communities has worked hard to create a vision and guidelines for their Lake James real estate that respect the region’s tradition of lake and land stewardship. The goal is to ensure that the natural resources that make real estate on Lake James wonderful today are preserved for generations to come.
