Founded in 1771 and located at the geographic center of the state, Chatham County encompasses an area of more than 707 square miles and merits the slogan "The Heart of North Carolina". The county is situated between two of the state's three largest centers of population and commerce, the Triangle Region and the Piedmont Triad.
Chatham county is home to Jordan Lake, a regional reservoir, with more than 46,000 acres, and one of the state's top recreation areas. Three rivers, the Haw, Deep, and Rocky, provide scenic beauty, recreation, and drinking water to the county and surrounding region. The natural beauty of the county belies its diverse mixture of industry, which include lumber and wood products, textiles, brick making, metalworking, and poultry production.
The Rocky River is part of the Cape Fear river basin and is one of the rivers that makes up the headwaters of the Cape Fear. The Cape Fear river basin is the largest basin entirely within the state. Within the headwaters of that basin the Rocky River flows through Chatham County and meets the Deep River at the White Pines Nature Reserve south of Pittsboro, NC. The Deep River then flows further downriver to join the Haw River at Mermaid Point, just southeast of Pittsboro, NC, forming the Cape Fear River. The Cape Fear river is 200 miles long from its beginnings in Chatham County to its mouth just past Wilmington in the Atlantic Ocean. If one wanted to, you could put a canoe or kayak into the Rocky River at Siler City and paddle all the way to the Atlantic Ocean!
