Gold Hill is a locally owned and operated seasonal rental home adjacent to historic Rutherfordton, NC in a friendly neighborhood. Rutherfordton was founded in 1787 and has a rich history. In the 1830s and 1840s, The mint, founded by Christopher Bechtler, Sr. in 1831, is credited with producing the nation’s first $1 gold coin. The Bechtler Mint Site is less than a mile from the home and the museum is just off Main St. in Rutherfordton. The town is home to the only remaining cluster of antebellum houses and public structures in the southern foothills of North Carolina. St. John’s Church, located on North Main Street was completed in 1849 and consecrated in 1851. It is considered to be the finest example of ecclesiastical Greek-Revival architecture in western North Carolina.
