A business district and town center developed down by the railroad, but in 1923, with the construction of what is now known as N.C. 49, Harrisburg’s business district shifted to the new road. Harrisburg Depot closed in 1933.
Located in southwest Cabarrus County bordering Mecklenburg County, the Town of Harrisburg was incorporated in 1973. Its government is by a seven-member council and mayor. The town hall, built in 2004, is located on Main Street. A town-wide water system was completed in 1980, followed by the town’s wastewater system in 1985. Harrisburg’s close neighbors include Charlotte Motor Speedway and the University of North Carolina-Charlotte. Harrisburg is served by the Harrisburg Fire Department — which was brought under the Town in 2006 — and contracts with the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Department for full-time police protection.
