From its roots in the 1800s as a logging town and turpentine distilling center, Dunn has evolved into Harnett County's largest municipality. The growing economy is firmly grounded in agriculture, manufacturing, distribution, and tourism. Conveniently located just two hours away from North Carolina's panoramic Crystal Coast and five hours from the world's oldest mountains, Dunn offers a mild year-round climate. Wonderful neighborhoods of well-kept homes and large shade trees, excellent schools, cultural attractions, local shopping, and exceptional recreational opportunities add to the quality of life. Two bible colleges are at home in Dunn. The Harnett Regional Theatre presents a variety of productions in the newly renovated Stewart Theatre, and Campbell University is easily accessible for additional cultural enrichment. Dunn is strategically located along Interstate 95, the major highway between New York and Florida.
