Welcome to the Town of Mount Pleasant's website.  Mount Pleasant is rich in history and enjoyment. We are committed to maintaining the quality of life that our Town has experienced for over 100 years. The population of Mount Pleasant is currently 1,686 citizens, but we are planning for and expecting growth in our community with the completion of major highways, and continued growth in the Charlotte region.

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 treasures 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.

Thank you for visiting our Town’s website! We will keep the site updated with the events and meetings held in our community, including our annual Independence Day Celebration at the end of June and a Christmas Parade at the first part of December. We hope you will visit us soon!
