Rowan County is a county in the U.S. state of North Carolina that was formed in 1753, as part of the British Province of North Carolina. It was originally a vast territory with unlimited western boundaries, but its size was reduced to 524 square miles after several counties were formed from Rowan County in the 18th and 19th century as population increased in the region. As of the 2010 census, its population was 138,428. Its county seat, Salisbury, is the oldest continuously populated European-American town in Western North Carolina.Rowan County is located northeast of Charlotte and it is considered part of the metropolitan area. Its population has increased as Charlotte has generated more industries and jobs.
