Choose Mount Holly
Mount Holly is a place of neighbors. We are rooted in respect for one another, the history of our community, and a welcoming spirit for people who choose this place to be their home or place of business. We preserve and enrich the distinctive character that is rooted in our small-town feel. This character is embodied by our historic downtown and our stunning setting along the Catawba River. Our town and natural environment nourish art and creativity. We strive to cultivate an active community with unique experiences in the place we call home. We recognize our role in a dynamic metropolitan region and know that we will thrive through growth that respects the spirit of Mount Holly; practices stewardship of our environment; and nurtures business, entrepreneurs, and jobs for our people. While we grow we will continue to be the place that connects community and nature. –Mount Holly Community Vision Statement
