Mount Gilead, North Carolina

About an hour east of Charlotte NC homes, buyers of North Carolina real estate can find themselves charming vacation homes in historic Mount Gilead.  Enamored homebuyers may decide to build log cabins on family estate properties in this beautiful pine-laden Carolina hamlet.

Mt Gilead NC properties are an hour east of Charlotte NC real estate.  About 1,500 residents live full-time in the secluded community that nestles between the southern parts of Lake Tillery and the Uwharrie National Forest.  One of three communities in the state bearing the same name, this particular town of Mt Gilead NC real estate is located in Montgomery County south of Albemarle and Morrow Mountain State Park.

A tourist and vacationer's stopover, this Mount Gilead features a Downtown Historic district with shops, restaurants, antique stores and galleries.  Portions of it are undergoing revitalization as part of the North Carolina Small Town Main Street Program.  

Near downtown, a restored Victorian house once owned by the influential McAulay family houses the Mount Gilead Museum.

Accomplished visual and performing artists utilize the Piedmont Center of the Arts.  It houses the Mount Gilead Arts Guild, a retail co-op store, a clock repair, and a venue for the classes given by a wood-turner.  In addition, the Ford Place Restaurant, Pub & Special Events Center preserves town history on its walls and under glass-covered tables.

The Town of Mount Gilead offers an excellent parks and recreation program.  Stanback Memorial Park is alive with playgrounds, baseball fields, swimming pool, and two pavilions.  During the Mt Gilead Summer Park Program, school aged children participate.  Annually during the fall season, it is time for Mt Gilead Day in the Park.

The Montgomery County School District serves the children.  The local Mt Gilead Elementary is a School of distinction and junior and senior high students travel to West Middle School and West Montgomery High School.  Located in Troy, the acclaimed Montgomery Community College (MCC) offers specialty programs, LPN program, a one-year college transfer program and personal enrichment programs for all citizens.

Though tiny, Mt Gilead proudly boasts a diverse economic base in the electronics, manufacturing, sawmill, and tourist industries.  Name companies with a presence here include PBS of North Carolina, Standard Packaging, McRae Industries, Unilin, Tobe Manufacturing, Jordan Lumber, and Piedmont Components.  North Carolina Department of Commerce recently certified the town's industrial site.

Nearby, the Town Creek Indian Mound tells us that Indians lived an agricultural life in the area.  A Pee Dee culture of the South Appalachian Mississippians sustained the practice of building eastern mounds for spiritual purposes.  Moving the clock ahead a bit, the North Carolina General Assembly incorporated the town in 1898.  Cotton farming sustained the local community until about 1940 when the textile industry emerged after the damming of the Catawba River for hydroelectricity.  Pine tree production replaced the cotton fields.
