Utilizing a vibrant heritage and proximity to Charlotte North Carolina real estate, this small, self-sustaining town of Harrisburg is an attractive place to raise families.  Harrisburg NC homes are located in Cabarrus County minutes northeast of real estate in Charlotte.  Proud of its excellent schools system, healthy economy, community activities, recreation and attractions, residents of real estate in Harrisburg enjoy their close-knit historical town.


Harrisburg NC real estate, with easy access 16 miles from Charlotte, is available in a wide range of prices, neighborhoods, and styles.  Popular master-planned communities such as convenient Farmington Ridge at Cabarrus, exclusive Glen Grove, and the affordable Canterfield community feature various lots, floor plans and styles, and options for custom building.  Families, professionals, and retirees looking for homes also select from a range of amenities including swimming pools and playgrounds.  The real estate market is relatively stable.

The Robert Harris family developed land in 1766.  In fact, some of the original descendants remain in the community.  Built in the 1850s, the Harris Train Depot brought new residents and industry to the area. It closed in 1933.  In 1874, the post office changed its name from Harris to Harrisburg.  It incorporated 99 years later.  As James Duke set about building dams for hydroelectric power, the farming community also embraced the textile industry.  Urban sprawl doubled the population and Harrisburg is now home to more than 6,000 residents and many new businesses.

Beautiful parks accent the peaceful southern lifestyle only 16 miles from the metropolitan area. 

With convenient access to Interstates 80 and 485, Highway 49, and the railway, the community easily collaborates with its neighbors, including Charlotte.  Also renowned for the Concord Mills outlet shopping and Lowe's Motor Speedway, the little town is a destination in its own right. 

Cabarrus County is the center of NASCAR and motor sports for the nation.

The bustling community works diligently to incorporate existing businesses and industry with the new.  Well-manicured streetscapes provide an inviting atmosphere for residents, businesses, and visitors alike.

The top-rated Cabarrus County Public Schools, number one schools in the state for 2007, serve families.  Students attend Harrisburg Elementary School and the new Hickory Ridge High School.  Colleges and universities include Cabarrus College of Health Sciences, Barber-Scotia College, with the University of North Carolina at Charlotte nearby.  Truly, this community offers
a perfect environment to live, work, and play.
