We're a community located in the shadows of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, unique by our heritage and proud of our rich and diverse culture.
We're a place where a walk down the flowered brick sidewalk on Main Street takes you back to your childhood when worries were few and summer days seemed to last forever, where you can sit on a bench and watch the world go by...
But just as Valdese is rich in history, it also boasts a number of exciting industries and businesses whose products are shipped throughout the country and around the world.
Valdese strives to maintain this balance between capitalism and tourism. While we offer many career opportunities, we can still provide the type of community suitable for growing up or growing old.
This web site is created for citizens as well as visitors who wish to explore the Town's government and its many services. We'd like to thank you for visiting and exploring our special town online. Please browse as long as you like and if you have any questions that aren't answered here, e-mail us and we'd be happy to assist you in any way possible.
