We would love for you to come see and spend time with us.

Belmont rejoined North Carolina's Main Street Program in 2013 with the vision of connecting the East Belmont commercial districts to the Main Street commercial district and to boost the flow of people within our local shops. The Main Street Program is a state and national program consisting of downtown revitalization projects that focus on ways to use local historical assets to boost economic development.
