Demographics and Location


Welcome to the Town of Mayodan, North Carolina. Mayodan is located in the northern Piedmont Triad area in the Mayo River valley. Our unique name comes from the location of the town, which is just north of the confluence of the Mayo and Dan rivers. Historically, Mayodan was a thriving mill town, which can still be seen in our historic mill villages and beautiful historic downtown.  

Mayodan continues to be home to major manufacturing companies such as Gildan, McMichael Mills, Sturm, Ruger & Co., and Bridgestone Aircraft Tire. We are also home to commercial retail such as WalMart and Lowes Home Improvement, and locally owned businesses such as the Mayodan Outdoor Store and the Riverside Collection. Fresh local produce can be found at the Western Rockingham Farmers Market on Saturdays and Wednesdays from April thru November.

While you are here, enjoy the amenities of our local parks, Farris Memorial Park and Elliott Duncan Park, and the Mayo State Park. With a variety of activities each park offers a unique experience for visitors and residents alike.

If you are looking for a place to put down roots, raise a family, build a business, or enjoy the outdoors, we hope you will come to Mayodan.
