Stanley Overview

Incorporated in 1879 and situated about 33 miles Northwest of Charlotte, Stanley is one of the oldest towns in Gaston County. Having its beginnings in the early to mid-1700s, Stanley’s motto is “A Friendly Place”. Their Country Fest is held on the 1st Saturday of October on Stanley’s Main Street.
