History

In 1755, the area was originally settled at the intersection of a major Native American path and the European settlers’ Great Wagon Road, both of which were trade routes. A trading post was erected to enable the transport of goods between travelers; the Native American path was called Trade Street and the Great Wagon Road became Tryon Street, named after royal governor William Tryon. By 1772, traders and settlers had built a number of log cabins in what was then called “Charlotte Town,” named after the queen of Great Britain.

 

In 1775, local leaders exerted their will as citizens of a free country and drafted the “Mecklenburg County Declaration of Independence”, the first declaration of this nature amongst the Colonies. The British objected to the document with force, and “Charlotte Town” was later described as “a hornets’ nest of rebellion”. Locals proudly called themselves “hornets” and fought fiercely in the wars of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. Today, financial, healthcare and energy companies have replaced the trading post, and the city is growing year after year. In fact, Charlotte is predicted to eventually eclipse Atlanta as the largest city in the South.
