Sister City

Mooresville-South Iredell Sister Cities (MSISC) is a nonprofit, community organization that seeks to promote international cooperation, understanding, and development through dynamic exchanges with specific cities with which Mooresville-South Iredell maintains a formalized sister city relationship.

Hockenheim Germany was selected as a sister city to Mooresville because of the racing industry connection. Official Sister Cities agreements were signed by the mayors of Hockenheim and Mooresville during visits in 2002 and 2003.

MSISC is a member of Sister Cities International. Created in 1956 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The goal of the Sister Cities Organization is to develop municipal partnerships between U.S. cities, counties, and states, and similar jurisdictions, in other nations. Sister Cities International works with citizens to participate in people-to-people exchanges and to build long-term partnerships between U.S. and international municipalities. Sister City relationships transcend national politics with the ultimate goal of world peace.
