Historic Gold Hill

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, 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.
