Locust Town Center
When people realize just how thriving Locust Town Center really is, they ask "Why Locust?" Why has this modern-day "new" town with its many shops, businesses, professional and municipal services grown in spite of our challenging economy and today celebrates its new government center, public library and community center, and new single-family neighborhood, townhomes and senior apartments?
As most visitors would admit, they expected a town center of this scope, land planning and distinctive architecture to have emerged closer to one of its neighboring metropolitan areas, perhaps Charlotte. But Locust Town Center and the City of Locust had the rare opportunity to recreate and centralize the town itself, the way small towns in America grew up originally...and in a setting that's simply refreshing.
The City of Locust’s most distinguishing assets are its small hometown character, its lifestyle and people who value their evolving history and traditions.
The City of Locust calls itself a "city with a soul"- we say it's a city with a future.
