Welcome to the Official Website of Gold Hill, North Carolina

Gold Hill offers an ‘Au-some’ experience celebrating the gilded age of gold discovery in North Carolina. Located in the heart of the Carolina Gold Rush Territory, the town was once the envy of Charlotte’s Mayor, who was quoted as saying, ‘he had hopes for Charlotte to one day be as big and prosperous as Gold Hill.’ Our visitors love getting away from the hustle of the city to shop, dine and play at a relaxing slower pace.

We offer everything from unique shopping opportunities in the restored mining town, to wine tours at an award winning vineyard and micro-brewery, hiking in the great outdoors, gold history tours, antiques picking, ‘Down Home’ dining and more.

Gold Hill is known for the Montgomery General Store Bluegrass Music Jam hosted every Friday evening year round as well as weddings, monthly events and seasonal festivals. We invite you to slow down and join us for a great family fun outing in one of the richest, most authentic, historic gold mining boom towns east of the Mississippi.
