Abstract:
Cleveland County concentrated on agriculture in 1943. Located at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Cleveland County produced more county than any other in the state. Though the county boasted agricultural wealth, industry compromised a portion of Cleveland County's prosperity. Twenty-seven textile plants employed 6,000 employees.

Another resource mined was spodumene or a lithium aluminum silicate important to the military for weapons manufacturing.
