Hickory, North Carolina Workers' Compensation Cases
Hickory, North Carolina is a charming southern town nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains. Hickory was first settled in the late 18th century, when the area was known as Hickory Tavern. Hickory Tavern then became Hickory in 1870 when the town was first incorporated, and has since grown to just over 40,000 residents. The city has received the All–American City Award by the National Civic League on three separate occasions. Many come to the region each autumn to see the fall foliage because of the surrounding vegetation and beautiful mountain vistas. Hickory is home to the Ensure Classic at Rock Barn, a PGA Champions Tour event and also has a yearly Oktoberfest that is attended by residents from the surrounding areas.
