Welcome to the Village of Alamance Website
"Our Village of approximately 800 residents is located in Southern Alamance County along the Greater Alamance Creek. We are proud to have been the first mill south of the Potomac River to weave multi-colored plaid cloth.
The Holt's and the Shoffner's were two of the families instrumental in establishing the community and in the building of the now historic homes. The Holt's were the ones to establish the mill and in bringing the plaid making procedure to the area. From this first mill in Alamance grew many of the mills in the surrounding area. The Village of Alamance was established in 1837 and incorporated as a Town in 1979. Some of the original mill homes are still standing and have recently been named to the National Historic Registry as well as the dam that provided the water for the power to the mill.
Recent subdivisions have brought new life to the community. New businesses are arriving and we find ourselves in a growing phase. We are just minutes away from major interstate highways, hospitals and shopping centers. This is a unique situation in that we are a thriving community with that quaint historic feel. Come visit us, stay awhile; in fact, you might decide to become a part of helping us chart a course for a prosperous and vital future. We welcome you."
- Mayor, Cathera R. Bundren
