Town Mayor Welcome,

Hello and welcome to the Town of Morven’s website and, more importantly, our town.

Morven is located North Carolina, adjacent to Wadesboro, Lilesville, McFarlin, Rockingham, and Chesterfield, SC.  We are 1hr 10 minutes from Charlotte NC, and 1hr 57 minutes from our capital, Raleigh, NC.  We are in the process of revitalizing our downtown area, which will truly make Morven a great place to live, work, play, raise a family, and do business.   

One of the greatest things about Morven, and the thing I love most about it, is the people. I am constantly amazed at how people come here with unique ideas and experiences and work together to create shared values and the vision for this wonderful place, for the place they have chosen to call home. All that Morven has become, and all that Morven will be is rooted in their talents, dedication, and hard work, and I couldn’t be prouder to serve as their Mayor.

If you’re already a part of our community, thank you. If you’re considering relocating your home or business to Morven -- or simply thinking about a visit -- please do. You won’t be disappointed.

While most everything you’ll need or want to know about Morven is right here on the Town’s website, our job at Town Hall is to help make you successful, so don’t hesitate to contact us if we can be of service.
