Enjoy a nostalgic change of pace and step back in time as you stroll along the wood sidewalks of this restored nineteenth century gold mining boom town. With its first gold discovery in 1824, Gold Hill is considered one of today’s most charming, historic small towns in North Carolina. Home to a quaint shopping village and a 70-acre park with beautiful scenery, it is quite easy to get lost in time as you discover all there is to see here.
Gold Hill offers everything from unique shopping opportunities in the restored gold mining town, to wine tours at an award-winning vineyard and micro-brewery, hiking in the great outdoors, bluegrass music, gold history tours, antiques picking and more. Visitors love getting away from the hustle of the city to shop, dine and play at a relaxing slower pace.
