McAdenville – Christmas Town USA



(From 12.25.21, Segment 3)

The hamlet of McAdenville has become synonymous with Christmas. But how did it start?  This small Gaston County town welcomes over 600,000 vehicles through its streets each December to see the thousands of lights, ornaments & decor.

Our guest, Dick Roberts, was one of four people that put up the first McAdenville display in 1954.  He shares that memory & the momentum that has evolved from the beginning.  He has also published a book covering the history of the area:  “A Walk I Remember.”

The display in McAdenville is up from 5:30–10 p.m. each night and concludes December 26th.
