Frankie Harrison-December 25, 1943 – April 29, 2012

It is unimaginable thinking of Gold Hill without Frankie Harrison, the Gold Miner’s Daughter. Frankie was as proud of her Elvis poodle skirt the day this pic was taken as she was of riding in Elvis’ pink Cadillac. Her kindness and selfless spirit will be greatly missed. She was as beautiful as the floral arrangements she created. Requiescat in pace, sweet Frankie…(this comment by Sandy Hickman on Facebook but the feeling is shared by all who knew Frankie)

Welcome to Historic Gold Hill!

Gold Hill is a historic community in central North Carolina. Gold Hill was the site of the original US gold rush. Starting in 1842 Gold was mined and many deep mines produced gold. A mining community of such size that the mayor of nearby Charlotte, NC said, “I hope that one day Charlotte can be as large as Gold Hill”.

Gold Hill is now home to a beautiful park and a village full of merchants in restored or reproduction period shops.

Please come visit us in Gold Hill! It’s a wonderful place to visit.
