The City of Belmont is a small yet growing town within the Charlotte region that offers a great quality of life. Our town is where people enjoy strolling through our historical shops, grabbing a bite to eat at one of our many fine restaurants, or joining us for one our festivals downtown. We would love for you to come see and spend time with us.
Belmont rejoined North Carolina's Main Street Program in 2013 with the vision of connecting the East Belmont commercial districts to the Main Street commercial district and to boost the flow of people within our local shops. The Main Street Program is a state and national program consisting of downtown revitalization projects that focus on ways to use local historical assets to boost economic development. For more information visit the North Carolina Rural Development Commerce website.
Downtown Belmont was settled around the 1750s and was originally called Garibaldi Station. It later became Belmont in 1833, which means "Beautiful Mountain" because of its close proximity to Crowders Mountain.
Downtown Belmont Historic District has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1996, and also contains roughly 264 buildings and 2 structures that were built between 1850 and 1949.
