Welcome to Your Rowan, a central place for sharing positive information about Rowan County, North Carolina.

We’re all about connecting and promoting goodwill about the amazing places and people that make Rowan a great place to live, learn, work and play. We look around and see all the good in this community, and we’re here to share it with you. And we want you to share your good news, too.

It’s smart business. And it makes you feel good about the place we call home.  

Rowan County is a place where you can be as connected as you desire to be.

These connections are built in our schools, businesses, houses of worship, local attractions, and any gathering place. They bond us together and Your Rowan is all about celebrating these connections.

To help us promote these connections, we’ve enlisted a team of local ambassadors to tell Rowan’s story. Think of them as bloggers and social media influencers. These individuals are called Connectors. We have our Connectors spread out all over the county, looking for original stories. You’ll see it in their monthly blog posts and social content, and we hope that you will spread it around.

Each Connector represents a different category to focus their storytelling. These are called Connections and include Arts, Attractions, Business, Education, Greenspace, Health, High Rock Lake, and Municipalities. 

Connect with us and build pride in Our Rowan.

Embracing the Digital World: A New Step for Rowan’s Arts Community

About a month ago Rowan County citizens were welcoming the new year, anxious to put 2020 in the rearview mirror. Many of us secretly hoped that all the problems of 2020 would somehow disseminate and that the new year would usher in lively concerts, bustling weddings, cookouts, and gatherings with friends.

Celebrating Black History Month in Rowan County

In a time full of chaos and change, there are few constants that remain. However, as our history changes there are parts that we cannot leave behind or forget. With February being Black History Month, it is an important time for us to reflect on the changes that have been made to promote racial justice and equality and explore the ways we can still continue to grow as a community.

Salisbury/Rowan Success is Built on Generosity of Our People

We would not be where we are today — in this opportune place to live, work and play — without the generosity of others that came before us and it continues today. It is important that we “pay it forward” and never let go of that spirit, taught to us by the hard-working, community-minded people who made the right choices.

Hard Working and Adapting: Keys to ‘Staying Power’ for Downtown Merchants

Take a stroll on South Main Street, and you’ll quickly find several downtown merchants within a block of each other who have earned the right to celebrate their “staying power,” if they could only take the time to step back and look at their achievements.

High Rock Lake – Too Much Rain Lately

Its spring, I get it. But enough with the rain already Mother Nature! How much more can we use?

High Rock Lake Litter – We Need To Be Aware, Come Together and Clean

The High Rock dam catches most of the debris which could remain in High Rock Lake. However, if we all work together to keep our litter – fast food wrappers, grocery bags, soda cans, and more, off the roads, this debris will not end up in the lake.

High Rock Lake Birds of a Feather

I appreciate the varied species of birds that makes High Rock Lake their home. I marvel at the sheer volume of waterfowl during certain seasons, how they navigate amongst themselves, even in heavy wind, swoop down to grab a fish out of the lake for dinner and stay warm during these cold months.
