Belmont, NC Overview

Once known as Garibaldi, the community of Belmont was renamed to honor a New York banker.  Incorporated in 1895, Belmont blends its traditional manufacturing sector in the textile and hosiery industries with a well-established and convenient retail sector.  The influence and presence of the North Carolina Center for Applied Textile Technology and the private Belmont Abbey College have elevated Belmont to the status of a center for higher education within the county.  The centerpiece of Belmont Abbey College is the Abbey Basilica, one of the region's historic landmarks.  Beautiful architecture graced by mature magnolia, lilac, and dogwood trees are part of the visual appeal and charm of the Belmont community.  The city is also the home of the celebrated regional attraction of Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden.  The wealth of yesterday's textile mill owners is still evident in stately mansions that line the town's main road, although modern construction harmonizes beautifully with treasures from the past and the panoramic countryside.

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.
