Established in 1824, Historic Gold Hill is a restored nineteenth century gold mining town with a 70 acre park, restaurant and numerous locally owned shops in eastern Rowan County. The village is home to the site of the Barnhardt and Randolph Gold mines that garnered nineteenth century fame as the richest gold mining property east of the Mississippi. Today the village is one of the regions most sought after wedding venues and a favorite for photographers. The old mining roads throughout the are now hiking/cycling trails and include the Gold Hill Rail Trail which was the original narrow-gauge railroad spur line through the mining region.
