We are Statesville, North Carolina and we are proud of our 250 year history, tightly woven tales of our land, our resources, our people, and our spirit.

Founded by pioneers who were drawn to our fertile soil and abundant water, we were built around the grounds of the Fourth Creek Meeting House. Soon after, we became the gateway to the frontier, as Fort Dobbs was built to protect this rich land from the vast unknown.

We are proud to be the quintessential North Carolina community in the middle of one of the world’s most dynamic regions.

Most any day can be an adventure in Statesville, NC.


You don't have to wait for an event to take a hot air balloon ride in Statesville, NC.  Local balloon pilots are scheduling flights twice a day, weather permitting, seven days a week, all year ‘round. You can choose a sunrise flight at dawn or a sunset flight, about two hours before the sun goes down—the best times of day for ballooning, when the winds are usually calm. There’s no better way to start or end your day!

How high would you like to fly? On a clear day you can see up to 50 miles —see the Brushy Mountains, Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Pilot Mountain, and hear the creek gurgling beneath the branches! Most any day can be an adventure!
