Salisbury, North Carolina

The city of Salisbury serves as county seat of Rowan County with a population of about 28,000 people. Salisbury is home to the renowned North Carolina soft drink, Cheerwine, as well as the regional supermarket chain, Food Lion. The largest employers in Salisbury are Food Lion, Rowan Regional Medical Center, and the Veteran’s Affairs Hospital.

By 1860, Salisbury was the fifth largest city in North Carolina and served as a major railroad hub and farming center. The agricultural industry supported Salisbury’s growth and prosperity through the turn of the 20th century, when textiles became king. Several mills opened in Salisbury, including Cone Mills Corp, a manufacturer of chamois cloth, flannel shirting, denim, and chambray. Over time, Cone Mills Corp matured into one of the top denim producers in the world up until the 21st century, when the worldwide shift of manufacturing forced Cone Mills to close its doors after a century of business. Duke Power-Buck Station (also known as Buck Steam Plant) is a four unit, coal-fired generating station located within Salisbury’s city limits. Buck Steam Station was Duke Energy’s first large capacity coal-generating plant built in the Carolinas. Salisbury has a strong record of historic preservation and is home to over ten National Register historic districts that continue to magnetize newcomers to the area.
