Norwood is a community rich in history with strong roots in agriculture. With a quiet small town atmosphere, southern charm and welcoming people this is the perfect place to raise a family or to get away from the hustle bustle of a large city. Close enough to the major metropolitan areas of Charlotte, Greensboro and Winston Salem you can enjoy the entertainment and activities of big-city life, and return to a quiet country setting.
Located in the southern Piedmont region of North Carolina in Stanly County, Norwood is situated at the confluence of the Pee Dee and Rocky rivers. Lake Tillery borders the town on the east. To the west of Norwood is the Rocky River. The great natural resources of Morrow Mountain State Park, Uwharrie National Forest, lakes, rivers and streams of the Yadkin - Pee Dee valley are among the many historic and beautiful places to visit.
Norwood is just an hour's drive from the world-class golf courses of the Pinehurst area. The Appalachian mountain range to the west and the Atlantic coast to the east are each but a three-hour's drive away. With our pleasant year-round climate there are many discoveries to be made.
