Welcome to New London, North Carolina! New London is located in northern Stanly County on US Highway 52 and NC Highways 8 and 740. New London was incorporated March 25, 1891 by the North Carolina Legislature. The Town Hall, which was renovated in early 2010 is located at 114 West Gold Street (NC Highway 8 & NC Highway 740).
New London is a great place to live in a small town atmosphere with good neighbors and friends. A place you can walk without traffic interference features a small park, modern fire department, good industries, and a community center for use by its residents, all utility services, great schools and churches.
It boasts good nearby golf courses, Morrow Mountain State Park, Tucker Town and Badin Lake, Cotton Patch Gold Mine & Camping (one of the few remaining mines still in operation where you can pan for gold) and is a short drive to Charlotte, Concord, Salisbury and Asheboro.
As a way of preserving our history, the town established the New London Area Historical Museum located at 226 South Main Street in New London. If you would like to receive more information, schedule a group tour, or if you have items to donate to the museum, please contact the Town Hall at 704-463-5423 or check out the new facebook page for the New London Area Historical Museum.
