Rocky Mount is a steadily growing town of about 60,000. It is in a great location, with Raleigh being 45 minutes straight west and more beaches than you can count within 2-3 hours’ drive eastward. The Historic Rocky Mount Mill has become a major social scene in the area featuring multiple restaurants, 8+ breweries, a coffee shop, and frequently offers live music and events. There are also 100 r...esidential properties and 120,000 square feet of offices on the property. It is located along the Tar River and is connected to the 3-mile greenway which runs along the river and features multiple parks with basketball courts, baseball fields, volleyball courts, picnic areas, and playgrounds. The city is currently connecting the main greenway with a Monk-to-Mill trial that extends from the Mill into downtown. Downtown is being developed in much the same way as Durham, which was recently voted #1 food city in the country. However, there are more building in downtown Rocky Mount than in Durham, so our potential is pretty exciting. We also have a new and very large dog park and covered seasonal farmer’s market, both within the same area. The sports complex is one of the ten largest in the country and is being expanded to include an event center with 8 full basketball courts on the first floor and conference rooms on the second floor which overlook downtown. The first floor can be modified for concerts, car or boats shows, etc. Braswell Library is a new state-of-the-art public library also located downtown. The city’s animal shelter recently got a new facility that is much more spacious to allow for more animals. We also have a reservoir within 15 minutes of town for fishing and boating activities. We have 3 golf courses in town, with Benvenue Country Club being associated with country clubs in Wilson and Tarboro. Therefore, if you are a member of Benvenue, you are a member of three country clubs.
While Rocky Mount is not a large city, our convenient location and growing community make it a great place to live and raise a family. Homes and land are very affordable. The Rocky Mount High School is one of the greenest schools in the state. We have multiple elementary and middle schools, 4 high schools, and a private school. As for safety, the crime rate is the lowest we have seen since the mid 1970’s. For those that don’t want to drive for travel, we have easy access to Amtrak which can take you up to Maine or down to Miami, all without changing trains.
There are many investment opportunities here as well. A young eager veterinarian would have a difficult time passing on this chance. CSX company will be finishing their largest train hub on the east coast by late 2018, which will bring some pretty major manufacturing plants and businesses to the area.
