It’s said never to mix business with pleasure, but in Caldwell County, we disagree. We have a business-friendly climate and a beautiful community that people want to call home. Quality of life is essential for attracting a reliable workforce, and Caldwell County is rich with attractions.
Located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Catawba Valley, Caldwell County offers a mild climate and the peace of spectacular wide-open spaces. However, metropolitan amenities are close enough to never feel isolated. Asheville, Charlotte and Winston-Salem are under 1.5 hours away.
Residents enjoy an affordable cost of living in picturesque towns and neighborhoods. Our community cherishes traditional Southern values while championing progressive business and technological innovation. We are passionate about education, the arts and the preservation of our landscape. Caldwell County is home to a remarkable range of cultural, artistic and historical treasures, including museums, galleries, live music, dance and theatrical performances, community festivals and street fairs. We are nationally recognized for our “adventure towns'' and public outdoor sculptures and there are more than 50 Christmas tree farms in the Lenoir area alone.
