DISCOVER DOWNTOWN'S ROOTS.
140 years ago, Downtown Mooresville wasn’t much bigger than a depot where cotton was unloaded from trains, alongside lines of brick buildings. Then with the boom of auto racing, Mooresville became the home to many NASCAR racing teams and famous drivers, earning it the nickname "Race City USA". Now Downtown is known mainly for its happening events and locally owned businesses. However, we have never abandoned our rich history.
Travel back in time while visiting D.E. Turner Hardware, Downtown’s longest operating business (since 1899!). Immerse yourself in photographic journeys of Downtown’s industrial and cultural growth at the Mooresville Museum. Enjoy exquisite regional works displayed in Mooresville Arts’ gallery, located in the historic train depot. And, while you wander, check out the restored hand-painted murals decorating many of the brick walls – a throwback to our railroad era. Familiar staples and new hot spots collide against the backdrop of the beautifully preserved, and carefully renovated, defining brick buildings, providing an authentically engaging experience you’ll be hard pressed to find anywhere else.
