Rocky Mount Mini Guide

What can you Tell me About Rocky Mount?
The city was named for the rocky mound that stood on the bank of the Tar River and which was the site of the cotton mill built as one of the city’s first buildings. After cotton dwindled, the city became an important railroad junction and then with the growth of the southern tobacco industry, it grew exponentially. Two awards came the city’s way for working together to build a better community and this spirit drew more people to the growing city.

How do I get to Rocky Mount?
Rocky Mount has a very small general aviation airport nearby but the nearest and most convenient airport is Raleigh Durham International Airport less than an hour away from Rocky Mount. Raleigh Durham takes mainly flights from North America but an American Airlines flight gives the only access from Europe. Travellers from other European cities must either fly to a major east coast airport or London Heathrow and connect there. You can get a bus into Rocky Mount but car hire is much more convenient.
What Should I Do When in Rocky Mount?
Take a trip by hire car to Rocky Mount Mills Village where, by accident, over sixty of the original village houses remain as they were built and a covenant on them means they must remain untouched as a national monument. There are still the falls on the Tar River which was where the first cotton mill was built and, whilst the scene has changed significantly over the centuries, the site still remains atmospheric.
