Strategic Location

North Carolina is halfway between New York and Florida and affords easy access to Eastern Seaboard markets. Moore County covers almost 700 square miles of land area in central North Carolina in the region known as the “Sandhills”. We are halfway between the mountains and the coast, and just an hour’s drive from the Research Triangle Park and Raleigh-Durham International Airport.  We can conveniently access interstate highways, international airports, major universities, and other resources in the Raleigh-Durham area, the Piedmont Triad area, and Fayetteville, but still enjoy a less hectic way of life. Residents appreciate Moore County’s mix of small town living and big city amenities – the best of both worlds.

Moore County’s location next to the Fort Bragg Army /Pope Air Field military installations also offers unique advantages.  With these installations adjacent to our southeastern border, Moore County benefits from their economic impact without the military environment affecting our lifestyle here. This proximity makes us an ideal location for defense-related companies.
