Overview


Around 1760, Scottish emigrant John Patterson left Philadelphia with a group of adventurous pioneers for the North Carolina Piedmont. Along the banks of Coldwater Creek in what was then Mecklenburg County, Patterson found fertile land for crops, timber to build a home, adequate game for his table, and friendly natives, with the exception of traveling bands of Cherokee. Cabarrus County has a rich history beginning with the first gold discovered in the United States. Today, it is home to NASCAR's Charlotte Motor Speedway complex; a first-class shopping mall, Concord Mills; an impressive convention center; and a world leader in biotechnological research with the opening of the North Carolina Research Campus, located in downtown Kannapolis.
