About Nash County NC Land For Sale, History and Geographical Information: Nash County NC today is known for its central location for highway passengers between New England and Florida.  Because Nash County ‘s topography is relatively flat with a few rolling hills, it became the perfect location for farming and agricultural pursuits in the late 1700’s.  Towns in its borders include Bailey, Castalia, Dortches, Middlesex, Red Oak, Spring Hope & Whitakers.   The county itself and Nashville, the county seat, were both named for General Francis Nash, a soldier who was mortally wounded while fighting under Washington during the American Revolution.

Rocky Mount is the largest city in Nash County NC.  It is the crossroads for I-95 and I-40, making travel to and from Rocky Mount strategically simple.  The Tar River flows through Nash County and Rocky Mount, and a seven-mile park path for bikers and pedestrians lines the banks for all to enjoy.

It used to be where old Spring Hope is. Early in the town’s life, there was a house in the area that was used as a resting place for travelers on horseback. The legend is that they named it Spring Hope because there was a small fresh-water spring they hoped would never run dry.  When the railroad was built, the “new” town sprung up about 1 or 2 miles northeast of the old town.

Today, new neighborhoods, modern and well-managed facilities for its residents, plenty of  historic places and cultural draws create superb relocation opportunities for those retiring or investing in land for sale in Nash County.
