Peachland, NC Overview

Originally known as Mulcahy, the town of Peachland was later renamed in 1888 for the beautiful peach orchards planted by a local farmer.  One of the unusual historic facts of the Peachland area was the founding of the Lawyers Spring Primitive Baptist Church in the early 1800s, a group that attracted "lawyers on horseback" from Charlotte to Wadesboro who camped at one of the many springs in the area.  Located off Highway 74 in the western end of Anson County, Peachland is home to the modern new Peachland-Polkton Elementary School that provides a quality education to the youth of this western region.  The active Anson County recreation department ensures ample opportunities for sports play for all ages, providing tennis courts, sports fields and courts, a fishing pond, swimming pool, and volleyball court. Newcomers will discover a delightful slice of small-town America in this friendly and welcoming community atmosphere.

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.
