Rutherfordton, NC - A Minted Original

Established in 1787 and once home to the man who minted America’s first one-dollar gold coin, the Town of Rutherfordton is one of the oldest towns in western North Carolina. With the tagline “A Minted Original,” visitors can mint their own unique experience in Rutherfordton by visiting charming shops that have spanned generations while collecting vintage treasures and admiring the only remaining cluster of antebellum homes in any North Carolina downtown.
