About the City

Located on the quiet side of Charlotte, Lincolnton is a delightful surprise to visitors.

Our distinguished downtown, engaging history and quality accommodations will leave you wondering why it took so long to find us.

With a population just over 10,000, Lincolnton has maintained its small town charm while providing big city opportunities.

Resident Accounts
Ask a dozen residents what makes Lincolnton so special and you'll get a dozen different answers. One will describe an atmosphere and way of life you thought had disappeared. Another will smile at the opportunity to talk about the way residents treat each other and newcomers and visitors like family. A 3rd will delight in describing our stately courthouse and classic downtown.

All residents will agree that our location-with hiking and horseback riding in the nearby South Mountains, sailing and fishing on Lake Norman, North Carolina's largest lake, and our close proximity to Charlotte, North Carolina's largest city-makes us North Carolina's Best Kept Secret.
