Gaston County is becoming so much more than 'the place next to Charlotte'. We've had several exciting announcements this month! Here's what we want you to know:
A total of 35 new vacation cottages are coming to the Crowders Mountain State Park area, the Gazette announced just yesterday. Starting with 14 cottages in the first phase, the all brick-and-wood cottages will be 'tiny-home-sized', from 350-800 square feet.
Gaston County School and Belmont leaders broke ground on the new Belmont Middle School this week. The school is expected to open in 2021. Set to cost roughly $34 million, the school will be 155,000 square feet and serve 1,000 students to start.
1Mission Coffee Company is occupying what Stanley residents know as the Train Depot. The Coffee Shop supports missions in Haiti and gives 10% back to the Town of Stanley for revitalization efforts. We've visited and WE APPROVE!
