History & Culture

From gold and textiles to auto racing and music, Cabarrus County is a region steeped in history.

The heritage of Cabarrus County dates all the way back to 1792. You’ll find it in storied grandstand seats and lyrics written by local musicians. It’s on display inside the area’s many museums, illustrated through eye-catching murals and carved into commemorative bricks at Dale Earnhardt Tribute Plaza. It runs through Little Meadow Creek, site of America’s first gold discovery, and is found along tree-lined Union Street in Historic Downtown Concord. This destination is made up of over 200 years of history and culture, and you’re invited to become part of it.

In Concord, step back in time with a visit to the stately 19th century Cabarrus County Courthouse, the Concord Museum and Memorial Garden, a beautifully restored three-acre garden dating back to 1804. The region’s rich textile heritage comes to life in Kannapolis, which began as home to Cannon Mills, a textile mill that grew to once become the world’s largest producer of fine towels and linens. Relive the gold rush era in Midland, site of America’s first gold discovery. Historic dining and drinking options abound, too, with restaurants like 73 & Main, a farm-to-table restaurant inside a former hosiery mill. There’s also storied spots like Gibson Mill and Southern Strain Brewing Company, both located in old textile mills dating back to the 1800s.
