About Gastonia

Gastonia is a city located in Gaston County, North Carolina, with a rich history dating back to the early 19th century. The city was originally named "Gaston" in honor of William Gaston, a prominent North Carolina jurist. However, the name was later changed to Gastonia to avoid confusion with the nearby town of Gaston.

One interesting fact about Gastonia is its strong connection to the textile industry. In the early 20th century, Gastonia was known as the "Textile Capital of the South" due to its thriving textile mills. The city was a major center for cotton production and manufacturing, with numerous mills and factories operating in the area. This industrial growth was facilitated by the presence of the Southern Railway, which provided efficient freight transportation for the raw materials and finished products.

Today, Gastonia continues to be an important transportation hub in North Carolina. The city is served by several major highways, including Interstate 85 and US Route 321, which provide convenient access to regional and national markets. Additionally, Gastonia is located just a short distance from the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport, one of the busiest airports in the United States. These transportation connections make Gastonia an ideal location for businesses involved in freight transportation and logistics.
