Belmont Real Estate

Originally settled around the colonial era, the first fort was built by a group of Dutch settlers near the junction of the South Fork and Catawba River in the 1750s. This early community came to be known as Garibaldi Station. As the years passed, the early inhabitants relied heavily on agriculture for their livelihood and operated many farms within the area. Due to being located at the northern end of a large peninsula and surrounded by the Catawba River to the east, Lake Wylie to the south, and the South Fork of the Catawba River to the west, early settlers did not travel to neighboring towns very often, as it required crossing a river in either direction. Although this location insulated early settlers from the changes of the surrounding communities of Gastonia and Charlotte, it would play a large role in the growth of the community in the coming century.

Between the years 1970 and 2000 the textile industry would continue to decline throughout the Charlotte region. Belmont was able to reduce major losses until the late 80’s and early 90’s but would experience a short period of economic decline. Progressing into the Twenty-First Century brought a renewed interest in Belmont. Once again, Belmont’s proximity to Charlotte and abundant access to waterways have brought new investors and residents. Many people see Belmont as the perfect location for access to outdoor activities and a short commute to work. Belmont continues to see the approval and completion of numerous residential developments within and adjacent to current city limits, some of which include high end waterfront properties. The remaining portions of the peninsula are quickly developing. The downtown area is experiencing redevelopment and revitalization. What was once the Chronicle Mill has seen approval of a project that would retain its history while bringing new life to downtown and Main Street. This modern era of development will see Belmont establish a new identity while still retaining its small town charm and sense of community. (
