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.
