Linville is a community centered just south of the US 221 and NC 105 intersection in Avery County, North Carolina. The community -- at times known as Clay or Porcelain -- was founded in 1891 and named for William and John Linville, who were killed by Cherokees in 1766.[2][3] The East Tennessee and Western North Carolina Railroad ("Tweetsie") passed through the community from 1916 till 1940, when a major flood washed away the tracks;[4]; the old rail route later became NC 105 in 1956.



Linville has three country clubs in the area:Linville Golf Course, Grandfather Golf and Country Club, and Linville Ridge; all open late Spring to early Fall. The Eseeola Lodge is also a popular destination for lodging during the Summer months. In the Winter, nearby Ski Sugar and Ski Hawknest are popular skiing and snow tubing destinations. Other popular attractions are just a short driving distance from Linville:
