Mooresville’s roots run deep in the Piedmont soil. Primarily an agricultural community from its incorporation in 1873, Mooresville was the dream of John Franklin, the town’s namesake. Moore was successful in bringing the Atlantic, Tennessee and Ohio Railroad to town by promising a depot site and a sidetrack to hold large cotton shipments that were hauled on the railway. He also offered to sell land to parties interested in building a town. With the upsurge in the cotton trade, the Mooresville economy quickly expanded to include textiles.
Today, Mooresville prides itself on being known as “Race City USA” because of its close ties to motorsports and NASCAR. A result of which has been the development of a workforce that is skilled in lean technology.
