I have been following this forum board for about a year now and I still am confused on where to post with specific questions about my location. Sometimes it gets moved to Western, sometimes to Charlotte. Just wondering if Hickory and its surrounding small towns have their own forum? I live in Caldwell County. When ever I post in the Western NC section, my responses are extremely limited. Not complaining, just wondering.... and I thank those who moderate and work these boards.... I have gotton tons of info from this board and it eased the transition from OK to NC.

City of Hickory - Catawba County (Piedmont) Main NC Forum
Granite Falls - Caldwell County (Mountain Region) Western NC Sub-forum
Lenoir - Caldwell County (Mountain Region) Western NC Sub-forum

I wouldn't consider any of the above towns a suburb of Charlotte.

That is a pretty map, but I would argue that it puts all three towns in question in the "general NC" forum. Lenoir lies along the line from Wilkesboro to Morganton, towns with roughly the same elevation and towns I (and the map given) do not consider to be in the mountains.

You gotta draw the line somewhere, though. Our mountains aren't nearly as defined as those in Colorado, where it pretty much goes from flat to vertical west of Denver and Boulder. Thus this question may never be definitively answered.

No, I said Caldwell County belongs in the Western NC sub-forum so we don't have to split counties that lie in both regions. I guess one could call them foothill counties, such as Surry, Wilkes, Caldwell, Burke, McDowell, Rutherford and Polk.

Try www.homesandland.com and use their map, it breaks things down into 3 parts, western, central and eastern with a breakdown of all the NC counties as well.
