Granite Quarry, NC Overview

Another town in Rowan County that was incorporated at the turn of the century in 1901, Granite Quarry claims the oldest structure in Rowan County, the 1766 Old Stone House. The town’s legacy and namesake of granite quarries still flourishes today in a single but highly successful operation of unusually beautiful pink granite.  Planners and residents are committed to building and maintaining an attractive cityscape, reflected by the active Community Appearance Commission.  One example of the prevailing civic pride is Granite Civic Park, a popular recreational site for individuals, couples, and families who gather to enjoy the green space, tennis courts, playground, ball field, and picnic shelter.  Regional recreational sites and county parks add opportunities for horseback riding, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, camping, hiking, and biking.  Easy access to Salisbury’s first-rate cultural assets adds to the quality of life in a small but charming town.

Climate and Weather

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
