Village of Gold Hill


  • St. Stephen's Church Rd.

    Gold Hill,   NC   28071


“The richest mining property east of the Mississippi.” This was the message sent to England in the mid-1800s after gold was discovered here in 1824. Once a thriving, rough and rowdy mining town in the eastern part of Rowan County, the village is coming to life again with the restoration of area homes and stores. Visit the Rock Jail, Mauney’s 1840 Store and Museum, E.H. Montgomery Store and other shops. Picnic and playground area in the park. Park closes at dark daily. No admission charge. Call before coming to verify store hours.
