Gold Hill is a restored nineteenth century gold mining town with a 70 acre park and a dozen retail shops located on a 70 acre historic park located in eastern Rowan County at Gold Hill, North Carolina. The 70 acre park is 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 park is one of the regions most sought after wedding venues. The old mining roads throughout the 70 acre park 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. The park is open during daylight hours. Picnic areas are first-come-first-serve. No charcoal grills are provided in the picnic areas.

Not only in Gold Hill but surrounding counties like Rowan, Cabarrus and Stanly counties. Let's keep history alive by telling the story of Gold Hill, North Carolina.
