Charlotte is often hailed as part of the New South—a region that has embraced its slow Southern charm while focusing on rapid growth and expansion. Though many of the historic buildings have been demolished and there are new high-rises dotting the skyline, Charlotte retains a strong commitment to retaining its rich history.
Local museums pay tribute to the history of the Queen City and entire books have been devoted to the city’s fascinating past, which spans more than two centuries. This section just scratches the surface and is intended as a brief background that inspires exploration of some of the historical sights and museums located throughout the city.
