Belmont is a small suburban city in Gaston County, North Carolina, United States, located about 15mi west of uptown Charlotte and 9mi east of Gastonia. The population was 10,076 at the 2010 census. Once known as Garibaldi Station, the name change for Belmont is disputed. Some say it was named for a prominent New York banker - August Belmont. Others contend the Pope ordered the abbot of the monastery to change the name since he would not tolerate an abbey in a place that bore the Garibaldi name. The abbot could see Crowder's mountain from the property and named the town Belmont - "beautiful mountain". Belmont is home to Belmont Abbey College.GeographyBelmont is located at .According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 26.2km2, of which 25.7km2 is land and 0.5km2, or 1.74%, is water.Nestled in the southern Piedmont region of North Carolina, the town of Belmont is flanked by two rivers, the Catawba River and its right tributary, the South Fork Catawba River.
