Belmont Home Inspector and History

Belmont was originally known as Garibaldi for John Garibaldi the pioneer who built a water tank 1 mile West of the Catawba River in the early 1870's.  The tank resulted in a train station stop in Belmont and opened up the path for this area to become heavily industrialized with textile mills. 

Blemont Abbey which has jurisdiction over eight Western North Carolina counties has been a part of Belmont since 1876.  Its cathedral at Belmont Abbey college is one of only a few abbey cathradrels in the country. If you go there be sure to see the painted glass windows that came from the Myers brothers studio in Bavaria and won gold medals at the 1892 Chicago Worlds Fair. Other big attractions in Bellmont include the Daneile Stowe Botanical Gardens.

A new Wal-Mart super center and many water front communities have recently been built to accomodate Belmont's growing population.  All of this plus Belmont's historic downtown make it an attractive place to live.  If you are considering moving to Belmont NC and will need a home inspector please consider Home Inspection Carolina for your inspection needs.
