Pretty exciting news for Gaston County & Cleveland County residents! Kings Mountain was 1 of 5 cities to receive a state grant for downtown revitalization.

Kings Mountain plans to revitalize downtown area - Story | WJZY

"It's a quaint town. Everybody knows each other," said Marie Jackson, owner of Chloe's Boutique.

"People want the convenience of a big city, but they may not necessarily want to live in a big city. They like to live in a smaller community where it's a tight knit community and where everyone knows everyone else, and everyone else feels at home," Hawkins said.

Sounds like a great place to call home!

Usually places don't get a revitalization grant unless they're complete dumps. Anyone know if that's the case here?

No, that not the case. Nor is it the case in downtown Hendersonville, which also received a grant from the same program.
