Aberdeen has a welcome split personality. It is both forward-leaning and laid back.
Aberdeen successfully embraces the small-town atmosphere of a railroad crossroads, but it also represents Moore County’s beating heart of commerce. Restaurants, shopping centers, and car dealerships bustle with activity at the confluence of Moore County’s main highways: US 1 and 15-501. Yet, just to the south, the Aberdeen Historic District, which was added to the National Registry of Historic Places in 1989, is booming with shops, cafés, and boutiques that have been revitalized to recapture the southern charm of a whistle-stop community from the first half of the 20th century.
It also is home to regular community events as well as popular nightspots, including The Rooster’s Wife and Railhouse Brewery.
For work, Aberdeen is home to several industries, including Kolcraft Enterprises, Meridian Zero Degrees, Thermal Metal Treating, and Longleaf Collection.
For recreation, Aberdeen Lake Park is just outside the historic district and features a 39-acre lake, a two-mile lake trail, picnic shelter, and a train-themed playground. Five other parks dot the community. Just south of town is the Jack Nicklaus-designed Legacy Golf Links.
