The best small town in NC

The citizens and businesses of Benson welcome you and invite you to explore the historic attractions in Benson, home to the Benson Museum of Local History, the Singing Grove Park and a thriving downtown merchant community. 

Not only does Benson host the largest festival in the county celebrating our farming heritage, Benson Mule Days in September, the town hosts the oldest gospel singing competition in the country, Benson Singing Convention, in June each year. Just outside the city limits, visitors will discover the new GALOT Motorsports Park and Broadslab Distillery, the first legal moonshine operation in the county!

Visit us soon and see why this town of 3,600 has the biggest heart of all – and is the Best Small Town in NC.
