More About Gastonia and Gaston County by Piper Peters Aheron
 
 
 
Overview
Located west of the Catawba River in the fertile North Carolina Piedmont, Gaston County brims with neighborly people and majestic vistas. With the advent of railroads in a Reconstructed South, the county united from High Shoals to Crowders Mountain and from Mount Holly to Bessemer City. Gastonia Station was born at the crossroads, and by 1910 the city's economy thrived and its population boomed. In 1926, Gaston residents again embraced progress as they witnessed the completion of the state's first four-lane highway through the area. While it eased the crowded trains and trolleys, the boulevard, now known as Franklin, would forever alter the rural landscape.
