This central Mitchell County community was named about 1890 by Jonathon Burleson because men delighted in whitling away their time on the porch of the local general store in the evenings and on Saturdays. One day when such a crowd had gathered, Burleson lazily commented, “This is a Loafer’s Glory.” This is one of the most uniquely named communities in North Carolina to this day.\
