The Waterfalls of Polk County
Big Bradley Falls
Little Bradley Falls
Pearson's Falls was discovered after the Civil War by Charles William Pearson. He scouted a railroad route from Spartanburg, South Carolina to Asheville, North Carolina. The 90 Foot cascade still bears his name today.
The Tryon Garden Club purchased the falls and surrounding glen in 1931. The club has maintained the land since then. There is a $2.00 per adult and $0.50 per child 6 - 12 yrs. entrance fee to view the falls. The proceeds for admission are used to maintain the property.
