Welcome toRutherford County, North Carolina

Welcome to our home and the quiet pace of a small town community, where the first one dollar gold coin was minted in the United States by Christopher Bechtler in 1831. This website has been designed with our residents, visitors, and businesses in mind, to provide online information that is easy to find and simple to use. Our moderate climate makes any season pleasurable. We're Small-Town Friendly where all can enjoy the luxury of being "close to the action, but far from the crowd."
