Kings Mountain is a small suburban city within the Charlotte metropolitan area in Cleveland and Gaston counties, North Carolina, United States. The population was 10,296 at the 2010 census.

Originally the settlement was called White Plains, but when the city was incorporated in 1874, the name was changed. It was decided that "Kings Mountain" would be a more appropriate name since the community was close to the historic Battle of Kings Mountain in York County, South Carolina.
