Growing up in Salisbury, North Carolina made for a great, old fashioned childhood. This was a town where everyone knew you, your parents, a sibling or some family member that seemed to connect everyone.
Teachers knew all of their students by name 20 years after graduation! Not much has changed over the years, in some respects. Salisbury still retains much of its small town roots. The town has grown quite a bit, however, over the years.
Many annual events are still trademark Salisbury entertainment. In the spring, there is the annual Spring Celebration at Hurley Park and in the fall there is the annual Autumn Jubilee and the Octobortour, where visitors can tour many of Salisbury’s most prominent and beautiful historic homes. The County Fair continues to bring out the masses for the week that it is in town.
Well known attractions dot the landscape as well. Dan Nicholas Park is arguably one of the best and most entertaining public parks around. This park boasts playgrounds, mini-golf, multipurpose fields, walking trails, paddle boats, a few amusement rides, a splash zone, a gem mining area, a reptile center and mini zoo, all in one place, with camping and picnic sites available.
Spencer, NC (north of Salisbury) is home to the NC Transportation Museum. Visitors come from all over to catch a ride on Thomas the Train as well as spend a day riding the Polar Express.
Salisbury is an extremely convenient small town. It is in between Charlotte and Winston Salem/Greensboro with only a 30 – 60 minute drive to any of them, providing quick access to two major airports, shopping, healthcare, NASCAR and many other attractions and activities along the way.
It is also home to 2 liberal arts colleges (Catawba College and Livingstone College). Food Lion and Cheerwine both have corporate headquarters located here.
Housing costs are low with a variety of housing options. There are several golf course neighborhoods, lakefront communities along High Rock Lake, historic homes along the downtown area and everything in between. Crescent Golf and Country Club is one of the newest clubs in town. This neighborhood boasts some beautiful, newer homes of varying price ranges. Be sure to check out our listing at 305 Hogans Valley Way. A stunner, at 5670 square feet, this home is perfect for the most discerning buyers.
Attention to detail is seen in every corner of every room. Call us for a private tour of this one of a kind home in the Crescent Golf and Country Club. Quiet elegance that is mere minutes away from all that Salisbury has to offer, in the shadows of the historic and lovely Catawba College campus.
