History

Community in the Belmont region started near the Fort at the Point (colonial period), which was constructed in the mid 18th century by James Kuykendall, a Dutch colonizer, and others close to the intersection of the Catawba River and South Fork. The fort was constructed due to constant hostilities with the Cherokee; however, it seems that it was never attacked.

The South Point Community, situated approximately two and a half miles south of Belmont’s city center, was the location of Stowesville Mill. Established in 1853 by Jasper Stowe and Associates, it was one of the original 3 cotton mills operating in Gaston County.

After serving in the Civil War, Abram Stowe came back to the region. He constructed a beautiful Greek Revival house (recognized as Belmont’s oldest building) and opened a tiny merchant shop. Soon after, he became the Atlanta and Richmond Air-Line Railway’s town depot agent and postmaster. Other shops were soon constructed close to Garibaldi Station (named after John Garibaldi, who was in charge of the building of a water tank close to the railroad), the town’s railroad stop. Existing inhabitants in the town of South Point relocated north to be near the railroad.

Garibaldi Station was officially renamed Belmont in 1883. A decree by the North Carolina General Assembly in 1895 incorporated a region within a half mile radius from the junction of the railroad and Main Street as the township of Belmont.

Area and Climate

A small suburban town, Belmont is located in Gaston County, NC, approximately 9 miles east of Gastonia and 15 miles west of upscale Charlotte. As of the 2010 census, there were 10,076 people living in Belmont. The town is used to be called Garibaldi, but was changed to Belmont to pay tribute to a well-known New York banker by the name of August Belmont.

Surrounded by the natural splendor of Catawba River and Lake Wylie’s sprawling banks, rich forests and rolling hills, Belmont attracts many visitors with various interests all year long. Being near to Charlotte, the town enables visitors to make the most out of big-city amenities while savoring a relaxing vacation in an area with small-city appeal.
