Published: 08/24/2011 by Pamela Harwell in Arts & Entertainment
Reed Gold Mine is an important historic landmark located in Midland, Cabarrus County, North Carolina, just over 20 minutes outside of Charlotte, NC. It is known to be the site of the first documented gold find in the United States and is considered one of North Carolina’s greatest historical assets. In fact, North Carolina led the nation in gold production until 1948. Gold mining was second only to farming in the number of North Carolina residents it employed during its peak years.
