History of Mount Pleasant, North Carolina
Mount Pleasant was founded in 1848 and has been a model example of small town America ever since. We are home of the Eastern Cabarrus Historical Museum. In the 1800’s the Museum was originally the administrative building of the all-male Mount Pleasant Collegiate Institute.
The building has been restored to its original beauty and houses many exciting and interesting treasurers of our community. In 1859, Mount Pleasant was also home of a women’s college called Mount Amoena Seminary.
In the early 1800’s, Mount Pleasant was the "comfort station" for the wagons that traveled from Concord to Salisbury. In 1833, the name of the Town was "Walker Store" then changed to Mount Comfort. In 1848, the town became Mount Pleasant.
Our Town is also located near Reed Gold Mine, the site where gold was first discovered in America. Reed Gold Mine is approximately 5 miles from Mount Pleasant and a wonderful place to visit while you are in the area.
During your visit to our Town, we encourage you to tour the Eastern Cabarrus Historical Museum and walk through our historical downtown area while you enjoy an ice cream cone or fountain drink from local merchants. There are two small parks in our historic area for the young children to enjoy and tables for family picnics.
As of the census of 2000, there were 1,259 people, 473 households, and 353 families residing in the town. The population density was 900.7 people per square mile (347.2/km²). There were 521 housing units at an average density of 372.7/sq mi (143.7/km²). The racial makeup of the town was 93.09% White, 5.88% African American, 0.32% Asian, and 0.71% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 0.24% of the population.
The median income for a household in the town was $48,207, and the median income for a family was $55,568. The per capita income for the town was $21,556. About 2.3% of families and 6.7% of the population were below the poverty line, including 1.9% of those under age 18 and 21.0% of those age 65 or over.
