Mayor Joe L. Gibbons

Welcome to the official website for the City of Lenoir. We are delighted to have you visit us and hope you enjoy seeing what makes our city such a special place.

These are exciting and challenging times for Lenoir. We have scenic parks and recreation areas and exceptional city services and public safety. Our rich cultural heritage in the visual arts has made our community home to more pieces of sculpture than any other community of its size in America. Lenoir has long been recognized for its musical heritage with outstanding musicians and music educators in every genre from bluegrass and blues to classical music. 

We are proud of the manufacturing and industries who have made their headquarters in Lenoir for many years and we welcome those who have recently made new investments such as Google. We are equally proud of the small businesses that are vital to the economic health of Lenoir, including the outstanding restaurants and unique small businesses that you will find in our historic downtown.

We have accomplished much in our nearly two centuries. Our early founders would be proud of what their dreams have become. As Mayor, I invite you to be part of making Lenoir’s future even brighter than its past.

Please contact me if I can be of any assistance to you.
