In Response To: Re: [NC] GOLD HILL, ROWAN COUNTY, ANCESTORS PLEASE ()
A few articles have been printed in the "Salisbury Post" about the Rowan County Museum and it's director, Kaye Hirst, who frequently gives lectures about the county's history. She can be contacted at 704-633-5946. I'm sure she'd be happy to provide you with historical information such as when gold was discovered there over a 100 years ago (hence the name, Gold Hill), and how lots of miners found themselves suddenly wealthy.
