New Home Communities in Gaston County

Tucked away alongside the major Charlotte-Mecklenburg metro area, and conveniently located close to the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport, Gaston County is home to some of North Carolina’s most beautiful natural features.  Founded upon the junction of the Catawba and South Fork Rivers, Gaston County offered natural protection for early settlers of the area during times of strife with the native Catawba and Cherokee tribes.  An industrial boom from the cotton industry in the mid nineteenth century brought prosperity to the area west of Charlotte and just north of the South Carolina border along I-85. Remnants of this golden age remain today, creating a unique and striking ambience that combines a home town feel with a modern edge.

Outdoor enthusiasts will find themselves in paradise, surrounded by rocks, rivers, lakes, and forests. You can canoe or kayak out on Lake Wylie or the Catawba River, or head out to the US Whitewater Center to enjoy a rafting trip, ride a zip-line, or climb a rock face.  For a more leisurely outdoor experience, the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden in Belmont boasts one of the most impressive floral displays in the southeast.  Crowder’s Mountain provides hikers a stunning view after a journey up the 800 foot peaks, so don’t forget to bring your camera! Holidays are especially festive in Gaston County, where Christmas Town USA lights up each season in McAdenville. So take a trip to a simpler time as you walk along Main Street or ride the rail to view the local landscape.

No matter the time of year, athletic enthusiasts will find themselves in paradise among all the local sports teams.  Gaston County is convenient to both NBA and NFL programs as well as minor league baseball and hockey teams and plenty of racing.  Invite friends to the Time Warner Cable Arena for a Charlotte Hornets game or to the Bank of America stadium to watch the Carolina Panthers play.  Cheer on the Gastonia Grizzlies as they round the bases or root for the Charlotte Checkers as they take the ice.  Events on the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord offer year-round entertainment, and the nearby NASCAR museum provides a historical context for racing in North Carolina.

For those more interested in indoor pursuits, Gaston County continues to deliver.  History buffs will enjoy the Schiele Museum of Natural History, which is directly affiliated with the Smithsonian Institute and includes the area’s only planetarium.  Wine drinkers can visit Fiddler’s Vineyard in Cherryville and catch a play at the Cherryville Little Theatre. Shoppers will find a variety of retail options, from the Concord Mills Mall to the numerous local antique shops for treasure hunters.  Foodies can join in on the battle of the barbeque, too!  Visit Buddy’s BBQ, Inc. or Peace-N-Hominy Q Shack in Belmont and weigh in on which is for you.  If you want to experience history and nature without sacrificing modern convenience, let New Home Source find you a place in your new home town.
