Located in southwest Cabarrus County bordering Mecklenburg County, the Town of Harrisburg was incorporated in 1973. Settled mostly by Scotch-Irish sometime between 1732 and 1765, Harrisburg is still home to families that arrived in the 1700s. In the past 10 years, the population has more than doubled.
Harrisburg's economic strength can best be judged by its business and industrial growth. With the building of an industrial park, availability of land and the quality of the work force, Harrisburg, a town on the move, reflects and maintains its rural heritage.
Well known builders such as Niblock Homes and Shea Homes build beautiful houses in welcoming neighborhoods throughout Harrisburg. The schools are rated the highest in the county.
Harrisburg's close neighbors include the cities of Concord and Charlotte. Attractions such as the Charlotte Motor Speedway, Reed Gold Mine, and Reedy Creek Park are only minutes away. Residents and visitors alike have fun spending time with family at the parks, can read a good book in the kid friendly library and enjoy delicious meals in the many eateries located in the Town Center.
For that downhome feel many people seek, Harrisburg has the home for you.
