High Shoals is located west of Charlotte, North Carolina in Gaston County. This small mill town can be found just off of Hwy 321 right on the north border of the County.
Things to Do
In the last decade of the 19th century, the community of High Shoals became totally owned by High Shoals Mills, a textile company founded by Charlotte industrialist Daniel A. Tompkins. Eventually, the mill homes were sold to private owners. High Shoals was incorporated on November 6, 1973, the most-recently incorporated municipality in Gaston County.
