Salisbury, NC

Located less than an hour's drive from both Charlotte and Greensboro, Salisbury is part of the larger Charlotte, Gastonia and Rock Hill metropolitan area, a small city that stretches for 17 square miles in the Central Piedmont Region of North Carolina. Established in 1753, the city is rich in Colonial and Civil War history, with several historic districts that feature a variety of Queen Anne, Spanish Missionary and Federal-style buildings. Nearly half of the city's more-than-28,000 residents are single, due to large student and retiree communities.


Education and healthcare each employ close to 20 percent of the city's population, and other major industries in the area include manufacturing and textiles. Two of the city's largest employers are the regional grocery store chain Food Lion, which is headquartered in Salisbury, and the W.G. Hefner VA Medical Center, which serves approximately 280,000 veterans living in the surrounding region. Despite a higher-than-average unemployment rate, Salisbury enjoys a cost of living well below the U.S. average.


The city accommodates about 11,400 houses with an occupancy ratio of about 91 percent. Out of these, owners occupy less than 5,600 houses and renters occupy about 4,780 houses.




Salisbury is home to top-ranked Catawba College, a liberal arts institution founded in 1851 and enrolling around 1,300 undergraduates annually. Other area colleges include Livingstone College, a historically African American four-year institution with a 1,000-plus enrollment, and Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, with an annual enrollment of around 2,500. Other nearby institutions of higher education include Hood Theological Seminary, Forsyth Technical Community College, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Winston-Salem State University, Wake Forest University, Central Piedmont Community College and High Point University.


Salisbury is served by the local daily Salisbury Post, which was established in 1905 and covers other cities within North Carolina's Rowan County as well. The city is home to five broadcast radio stations, and it receives both television and radio stations from a number of surrounding broadcast markets.
