Wis one of the premier neighborhoods in North America. Tom Hanchett, historian at the Museum of the New South has called Myers Park Charlotte’s finest planned suburb. George Stephens developed the neighborhood on property originally owned by his father-in-law John Spring Myers. John Nolen, who later became a well know landscape architect designed the site on which the neighborhood is located starting in 1905. 2005 marked the 100th anniversary of Nolen’s coming to work in Charlotte which resulted in his planning our neighborhood.
Myers Park retains much of its original flavor and we believe it is a neighborhood worth protecting to the standard set by its founders when it was developed.

The Town of Cornelius, the second youngest of Mecklenburg County’s six incorporated towns, was founded in 1893, but not incorporated until March 4, 1905. The town’s origin has been traced by many historians to a dispute over cotton weighing.

Huntersville, the first Lake Norman town north of Charlotte in Mecklenburg County, was renamed from Craighead to Huntersville in honor of major landowner and cotton farmer Robert Boston Hunter. The town officially incorporated in 1873. Fertile land and a rail line promoted quick growth.
Even before Huntersville was established as a municipality and named for one of its founding fathers, steam engines carried passengers on rails that still run parallel to N.C. 115. Farmers grew cotton on their large plantations and prominent schools attracted families from near and far. In later years, textile mills brought more jobs and residents to the area.
As the town grew larger, so too did its business community. The Virgin Manufacturing Company, a cotton mill, encouraged the development of Huntersville’s “mill town” on the east side of the railroad tracks.
It is the sense of Huntersville’s past that has brought so many new residents to this town. The allure of the remaining farmland, the simple commute into the city of Charlotte and the proximity to the relatively new Lake Norman are just some of Huntersville’s enticements.
Nestled in the beautiful Piedmont approximately 30 miles north of Charlotte, Mooresville, North Carolina offers a desirable quality of life and has been described as the optimum environment for living, working and playing. Life on Lake Norman is a scenic & peaceful kind of living.
