Caldwell County is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the western part of North Carolina. Established on January 11, 1841, the county was formed from parts of Burke County and Wilkes County. It was named in honor of Joseph Caldwell, the first President of the University of North Carolina, who is remembered for his significant contributions to education in the state.

The county seat, Lenoir, was named after William Lenoir, a Revolutionary War hero and early leader in education in North Carolina. Another major city in the county is Granite Falls, named for the waterfall over granite ledges in the city. Caldwell County's economy was initially built upon agriculture, primarily in cotton and corn production.

With the establishment of the Chester and Lenoir Narrow Gauge Railroad in 1873 and later, the Caldwell and Northern Railway in 1898, the county experienced an economic boom as transportation and access to markets improved. The region's vast timber resources led to the growth of the furniture manufacturing industry, which became a foundation for Caldwell County's modern economy.

A fun fact about Caldwell County is that it is home to the "Hudson Uptown Building" (commonly known as the HUB), which is a historic building containing a unique vintage theater with a 1930s facade. It originally opened in 1939 as the Hudson Vaudette Theater and now serves as a multi-use facility for various community events, including plays and musical performances.

Another interesting aspect of Caldwell County is its natural beauty and outdoor recreational opportunities, with the Pisgah National Forest bordering the county, offering hiking, camping, and fishing for residents and visitors alike.
