Incorporated in 1901, Landis offers a small-town residential atmosphere in rural Rowan County. The prominent landowners of the Linn family founded a mill at this location at the turn of the century, followed by the Landis Depot and the Linn Brothers Store. These structures, along with the vintage post office and jail, remain as historic landmarks in modern Landis. The community attracts regional visitors to its lively Landis Heritage Days in June, a hometown celebration that features arts and crafts, great food, midway rides, live entertainment, and an evening street dance. Families in Landis enjoy access to lush parkland and preserves for camping, fishing, water sports, hiking, biking, and horseback riding. They can also take advantage of cultural attractions that are associated with highly developed metropolitan areas in the county seat of Salisbury, where everything from symphony performances to touring productions are showcased in first-rate venues.
