Gaston County Turns 175

2021 represents a significant chapter in Gaston County's history—its 175th anniversary. On December 21, 1846, Gaston County was officially formed. As we commemorate this milestone, it is important to not only look back at where we have been, but also look ahead to what is on the horizon. Join us this coming year as we celebrate through Signature Events, honor our Hospitality ALL-STARS, and imagine the County's next 175 years.
