Rowan County is nestled in the Piedmont region of North Carolina providing citizens and visitors with a premier location for enjoying a blend of urban and rural lifestyles. Residents benefit from the quiet more relaxed atmosphere of a smaller community, while appreciating the quick access to the larger metro areas of Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Greensboro, and High Point. With direct availability to major interstates and highways, the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and the sandy beaches along the Atlantic coastline become an easy and enjoyable drive for a quick get-away. And Rowan County is strategically located to three international airports and numerous regional airports, in addition to being a frequent stop for the Amtrak rail service.
Our community is rich in education by housing four colleges: Catawba College, Livingstone College, Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, and Hood Theological Seminary. We are proud of our history, arts, theater, and family parks, along with numerous manufacturing and retail establishments. You will find yourself fortunate to call Rowan County “home!”
