Person County, NC

Residential and Commercial development has grown steady over the past few years in Person County, partly due to the county's location near the Research Triangle region in addition to its proximity to Virginia.

The Hyco Lake area and southern portion of the county has seen an influx of new home and commercial development in the late 20th and early 21st-century. The county's largest employers are GKN, Eaton Corporation and Georgia-Pacific Corporation.
