With an exceptional quality of life, a world-class workforce, outstanding training offered at Piedmont Community College - recognized as one of the top community colleges in the state - and solid transportation offering excellent shipping and distribution capabilities for the entire east coast, this is a safe, caring community that will step up to help make your business thrive.

But it's not just the "where" of Person County that makes it appealing. The "what," as in what you'll find here, is just as nice. Lush, rural scenery. Small-town hospitality. Rolling hills dotted with forests and farms. There's even an outstanding history museum. The Person County Arts Council brings a variety of arts, crafts and educational programming to the region, as the active theater-arts community continues to create enriching entertainment. Enjoy the out-of-doors. Spend a long afternoon on Hyco or Mayo Lake. Both lakes are ripe for exploring.
