Incorporated as a town of Mecklenburg County in 1873, it was largely agricultural and remained as such even with the coming of large textile mills toward the end of 19thcentury. A good portion of the farmland has been preserved to this day, giving the town a refreshing small-town vibe amid rapid economic progress.
