For those looking for an apartment in a great North Carolina location, Newton is ideally located about an hour northwest of Charlotte, halfway between Asheville and Greensboro. Newton is the county seat of Catawba County, and the first county courthouse was built around 1843.
The earliest settlers to the area arrived to the Carolina colony in the 1740s. The German settlers (Pennsylvania Dutch) established a church in a small log hut. After the hut was struck by lightning and burned down, the settlers built a bigger meeting house in 1757. The Deustch Meeting House later became known as the South Fork Church, and in 1818, a log church was built. That church, Old St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, still stands and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is one of the oldest churches in North Carolina. Other historic sites include homes built in the 1880s, the Catawba County Courthouse, and the Grace Reformed Church, which was built in 1887.
Since Newton is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, residents and visitors can enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, camping, fishing, and skiing.

It isn’t just the amazing mountain views that you’ll enjoy from your Newton apartment. Newton’s strong economy is based in industry, with companies that include furniture and textiles, medical supplies, telecommunications, fiber optics, and more.
