Quality of Life
Maiden is located the southernmost portion of Catawba County. Easy access to I-40 and I-85 makes traveling easy for our citizens and our industries. With the Appalachian Mountains and Blue Ridge Parkway only an hour away and the North Carolina and South Carolina Beaches only four hours from Maiden, our community is a desirable place to work and live.
Maiden and Catawba County provide a safe and friendly environment that all families love and appreciate. Due to a low crime rate, it is not uncommon to see walkers out on the sidewalks of Main Street late at night enjoying a moderate climate. Maiden has a variety of housing options consisting of apartments, multi-family units, and single family. The low cost of living enjoyed by our citizens makes our Town an ideal place to live and raise a family.
The Town of Maiden is home to two family physician offices that work in conjunction with our two local hospitals, Frye Regional Medical Center and Catawba Valley Medical Center. Both of these fine hospitals are located within a 15-20 minute drive of downtown Maiden.
An array of churches with different denominations can also be found here in Maiden. Our religious community provides excellent programs within our community that add to the quality of life enjoyed by our citizens.
Our local businesses and industries provide support not only through jobs and retail sales but through donations for community events such as our annual Springfest.
No matter where your travels take you, with Maiden as your starting point, your return home will remind you why Maiden is "A Great Place to Call Home".
