The Town of Robbins, in northwestern Moore County, has a rich and varied history, but is redefining itself for the future. While preserving its scenic natural resources and the feel of yester-year. Robbins is working to find its niche in the global economy as a great place to work and do business.
Robbins is also home to the annual Farmer’s Day celebration, which features what may be the largest horse parade on the East Coast. It is close to Seagrove, a major center for handcrafted pottery. Many potters live in and around Robbins, and NC Highway 705, known as “Pottery Highway”, runs right through the town.
Major industries that are thriving in Robbins include:
Robbins was one of 20 participants in the NC Rural Center’s 2006-2009 Small Towns Economic Prosperity (STEP) program that helps small rural communities with initiatives to revitalize their local economies.
