Development Ideas

brewWhy at the Waldensian Mill in Valdese?

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Valdese is far more than your average small town. Valdese was founded on the rich traditions of 19th century Waldensian settlers and their historic journey from the hills of Italy to Burke County, NC.
Location! Conveniently located along Hwy 70 and within 2 miles of Interstate 40
Valdese is a growing community. Several lake front subdivisions are being developed over the next two years.

Valdese has some of the lowest cost and highest quality municipal water in the State, this is the result of decades of partnering with several large textile manufacturers, who need exceptional water quality for their yarn dyeing techniques.
Currently, Valdese is seeking a brewery and with two thriving breweries in the neighboring city of Morganton, Catawba Brewing & Fonta Flora, Burke County has a market to take advantage of.

Valdese has been recognized as one of the top 20 safest towns/cities in North Carolina over the last two years, out of more than 500 towns/cities statewide. Rankings were determined by measuring per capita property and violent crime.
