Maiden, North Carolina

Maiden NC, incorporated in1883, is a small town located primarily in Catawba County in the foothills of Western North Carolina. Part of the township extends also into adjacent Lincoln County. LocCatawba County Sealal historians agree that Maiden was named after Maiden Creek, and in the early days  the township was the site of a cotton mill and also became a trading center for the region.
     Maiden is noted for its enthusiastic support of the local Maiden High School Blue Devils football team, and is known as "The Biggest Little Football Town in the World". While that may not be completely true considering the size of America, it is a true reflection of the great vitality and home-town spirit of the residents of Maiden.
      Over the years the city has enjoyed a large industrial base, and continues to do so today. A number of textile and furniture manufacturing companies, typical of the greater Hickory area, call Maiden home.
 

     Maiden has a number of parks and recreational facilities. These include the superb Recreation Center located on East Klutz Street that is open to the general public, and the Maiden Municipal Park. The Recreation Center facilities include a gym, banquet room, classrooms, softball complex, playgrounds, picnic shelters and a walking trail. Maiden has an annual Christmas Parade held the Saturday after Thanksgiving and a spring festival, Springfest, held every May.
