I know what you are thinking and no, the richest city in North Carolina is NOT Charlotte.
Sure, Charlotte is a beautiful city with all the trees, parks, and pretty buildings around town and all but is not named as the richest city. Rich can mean many things and this survey factored in the quality of life.
The US Census Department compiled a list for the whole country and used statistics like unemployment rate and median household income..and found the richest town in North Carolina. It is Marvin or Marvin Village in Union County.
I will say my life became “richer” when I moved to the country. For me; space, nature, and life in a small town are where I feel the richest. To learn more about North Carolina’s and the country’s richest cities just go right here
