While the natural beauty of Gaston County invites you to get outside and explore, it’s our cozy downtowns that will create a comfortable place for you to relax and enjoy. We hope you enjoy the unique experience each of our neighborhood towns have to offer. We are located close to Charlotte to the west just over the Catawba River via I-85. Welcome to Gaston County!
Born out of the boom of the textile industry in the 1800s followed by continued growth in railroads, today Gaston County is seeing a major resurgence due partly to the outward sprawl of nearby Charlotte, turning our towns into bustling neighborhoods, each with a unique story to tell.
