Located in eastern Rowan County, it was once a thriving, rough and rowdy mining town rivaling Charlotte in size and wealth. Visit Gold Hill Mines Historic Park and the Restored Mining Village of Gold Hill. The 70-acre park offers picnic areas, playground and rental facilities for formal and informal functions and is open daily until dark. The shops in the village offer visitors a nostalgic step back in time to a working nineteenth century mining town.
