Alamance County

Alamance County, NC was once known for its furniture, textile and dairy industries, however, most of these industries are now gone. Because of the county’s low property tax rate, it has attracted residents who work in Durham, Orange and Guilford Counties. The largest city in the Alamance County is Burlington, located in the western part of the county. Other cities include Graham (the county seat) and Mebane. Outside these cities, small communities dot the rolling countryside. North of Burlington, the small town of Elon is the site of Elon University, a private liberal arts university. In the south central portion of the county near Snow Camp, the Cane Creek Mountains rise to an elevation of about 900 ft. Bass Mountain, a peak in the Cane Creek Mountains, hosts an annual bluegrass festival. Hiking and water activities are found along the Haw River which runs through the county. Alamance County is served by one school district – the Burlington-Alamance School District.
