Gastonia Homes for Sale

Gastonia is a member of the Charlotte metropolitan area and the seat of Gaston County. With a population of nearly 76,000, it is the largest city in the county, the second largest suburban city in the Charlotte area, and the 13th largest city in the state of North Carolina. Founded in 1846, the town is named after William J. Gaston, who was a United States Representative from North Carolina. He also wrote the state song of North Carolina, “The Old North State.” Gaston County borders Mecklenburg County, as well as the South Carolina state line. The area has a long, rich history. Before Scotch-Irish, English, Dutch, and German settlers began moving to the area, the Cherokee and Catawba Native Americans inhabited the land. As more Europeans settled in the area, the Cherokee left, and the Catawba moved to Fort Mill as protection from other hostile tribes. In 1750, a man named Captain Samuel Corbin received a farming grant, allowing numbers of families to establish themselves by operating subsistence farms. Most farms were not very productive except those that grew corn. The area’s corn production turned into whiskey production, and by 1870, the entire Gaston County area was known as the “Banner Corn Whiskey County of [North] Carolina.”

Out of all the reasons to choose Gastonia for your next home purchase, the natural beauty of the area can be enjoyed at various natural spaces. A perfect example is the Congaree National Park located in Richland County near Eastover. This 26,276-acre National Park acts as a preserve for the nation’s largest old growth bottomland hardwood forest.
