Birthday Arrangements Sent to Residents of Bessemer City, NC
Bessemer City is located in Gaston County. It is a small suburban city with more than six thousand residents. It is six miles away from Gaston. The city was named after Sir Henry Bessemer, who made the Bessemer process for smelting iron, and Bessemer was built on land bought from the Ormand family. The earliest European settlement in the city was established when King George gave about two thousand acres to James Ormand. James built the mining company to extract iron ore, and a furnace called the Washington furnace was founded on the land. The furnace was used to process most of the iron ore mined in Bessemer. It still remains one of the oldest furnaces to date.
The furnace was used to make iron implements for local and statewide products. The "Old Furnace" site is still owned by the Ormond Family Foundation and is used as a gathering site for the family. The main occupation of the Bessemer residents was corn and cotton farming. They also produced whiskey, and Gaston County has more licensed whiskey distilleries than any other county in North Carolina.
The Danville and Richmond Railroad Company was built through Gaston County. A general store was also built next to the railroad company, and the store was called "Wooten's Station." The National Register of Historic Places has the central school and Bessemer City Downtown Historic District.
