Background Information on Historic Seventh Avenue
Seventh Avenue originally developed as a commercial district during the late 19th and early 20th centuries around Hendersonville’s first train depot, which was established in 1879. The majority of the buildings are simple one and two-story brick commercial and warehouse structures in the typical pattern of buildings connecting to each other. There are thirty-two contributing structures in the district. This area is currently undergoing revival as a viable commercial area.
