A former cotton mill town, Cooleemee is steeped with pride and civic spirit. Though the textile industry has moved from the town, the lifestyle remains. Located in south central Davie County, Cooleemee still has over 300 mill houses within its town limits, offering residents historic and affordable living, surrounded by friends and neighbors.
The town has a beloved community elementary school, as well as two heritage museums. RiverPark at Cooleemee Falls, with its sandy beach and picnic areas, is just across the South Yadkin River.
