The history of Stallings dates back to the early 1900s when Matthew Thomas Stallings, a farmer and merchant from Harrisburg, bought 200 acres of wooded land in Union County on the border of Mecklenburg County. He operated a country store near the Seaboard Railway Track, and had a vision for building up the settlement and encouraging enterprise and industry in the vicinity.
Mark Conder started the town’s first industry by opening a saw mill. Conder’s brother, Martin Stallings, moved to Stallings, and purchased another tract of land for farming. It was at this point that the settlement became known as Stallings. Every year after the crops were laid, Martin Stallings would host a picnic with foot races, sack races, egg races and other games. This tradition continued through the years and became known as Stallings Fest, which still occurs to this day. The town of Stallings was officially incorporated in 1975.
