Made up of over 400 square miles of small towns, bustling cities, serene countrysides, and picturesque lakes, Catawba County is home to endless diversions. The county was formed in the mid-1800s from Lincoln County and was named for the Catawba tribe of Native Americans who once inhabited the area around the Catawba River. Once considered one of the most powerful Southeastern Siouan-speaking tribes in the Piedmont, the Catawba people now live along the border of North Carolina near the city of Rock Hill, South Carolina. The county seat is Newton and Catawba County's largest city is Hickory. Hickory is home to Lenoir– Rhyne University, the Hickory Motor Speedway, and the minor league baseball team the Hickory Crawdads. The Catawba County Economic Development Corporation controls a 55-acre business park in Conover designed for data centers and office use. CommScope and Corning, manufacturers of fiber optic cabling, have become the region's largest employers. Maiden, North Carolina (another regional Catawba County town) is home to the Apple iCloud data center, the largest privately owned solar farm in the United States. The Catawba County Chamber of Commerce is a dynamic association of more than 850 businesses working together to make the region not only more livable for current but prospective residents, businesses, and industries. For a complete list of not only chamber activities and events but an inside look at the county itself go to the chamber website: Whether you are just visiting the area or looking to make Catawba County your new home, you might just find what you're looking for.
