Forest Hills Community
Ask any long-time resident of Rutherford County to name the most well-established community in the area and Forest Hills would be the clear-cut favorite. First developed in the 1960’s, Forest Hills was an immediate hit for doctors, business owners, and other professionals whose career required that they be near the downtown area of Rutherfordton. As you meander throughout the community, you will see a fine blend of older, well-maintained homes and brand new construction. Because of its popularity, many new “sections” have been added to Forest Hills over the years. Residential pricing ranges from $200,000 to $1 million+ and this community continues to attract new families each year. Nearby attractions include Rutherford Hospital, Cleghorn Golf & Country Club, Crestview Park, Rutherfordton Elementary, etc. Charlotte and Asheville, NC are both about an hour drive from Forest Hills and historic Lake Lure is about a 30-minute drive away.
