Why Graham, NC

Alamance County was founded by a small population of pioneering peoples and support from a handful of hardworking community leaders. Since 1849 the county culture has been shaped by history, built by hand, with heart and hard work. Today the community retains a distinctly easy-going and approachable air. It is a culture carried forward by 150,000 plus residents who are all proud to call the “Carolina Corridor” home.


It’s not hard to see why Alamance natives are proud, as the county line captures 435 square miles of the nation’s finest natural beauty.

There is plenty of affordable housing, schooling, events and activities for all-ages to enjoy all kinds of good times.

Visitors to North Carolina’s heartland country will find a local population that is warm and inviting and makes time to say hi. Days off can be well spent in the arts or in parks, engaged in recreation, attending community events, watching races at the Speedway or cheering on hometown favourites in NCAA athletics.

There are plenty of communities to explore with character and charm, all with much to see and more to do. While Burlington may be the biggest and Graham is the seat, Gibsonville, on nickname alone, (The City of Roses) may just be the belle of the ball.
