Our motto is "Preserving the past for the
sake of the future". The Belmont Historical Society, Inc. (BHS) is dedicated to
preserving the history of the city of Belmont NC and its immediate surrounding
area. The BHS is recording the places, the people, and the
times from the past that have made Belmont the community that it is. The BHS,
Inc. traces Belmont from the early days, even before Garibaldi, through the
years as a textile manufacturing giant, to the current days of a growing
community of interesting people and places. Belmont NC has a well documented
history via the written word from several books, photographs and stories passed
on by word of mouth. Some not yet captured for the citizens of the future. Come
in to see the HUGE collection of photos, videos, books and artifacts collected
from citizens of Belmont.
The BHS Inc. is currently housed in the former
RL Stowe home at 40 Catawba Street, Belmont NC. Believed to be the Third home
built in Belmont.
The BHS continuing efforts will be to educate
our citizens about Belmont's heritage, provide a place and resources for
research, and have programs to help all our citizens gain more knowledge of the
history of Belmont.
