Clyde, North Carolina

Clyde NC is a small town located just west of Asheville and has the distinction of being "away from it all" but without the isolation usually associated with mountain living. Long associated with neighboring Canton, Clyde is also home to Haywood Community College and the Haywood Regional Medical Center. Recently two industrial parks have been developed just north of the Canton/Clyde. Clyde Township was formed in 1877 from Pigeon, Beaverdam and Waynesville. At first it was called Lower Pigeon. Later the township was named Clyde after the little town that had grown up on the banks of the Pigeon River.
     Clyde is surrounded by mountains and valleys which afford numerous outdoor recreational opportunities to the visitors and residents. Clyde is also the home of the
Shook Museum, housed in one of the oldest buildings still standing in Haywood county. It was build around 1795 by Jacob Shook for his son Peter. This house is known and associated with the founding of Methodism in Haywood County.
