Charlotte, NC

Charlotte, North Carolina, or the City of Charlotte is located in the southern piedmont of North Carolina. Charlotte is the largest city in North Carolina. Charlotte is known as the Queen City. Charlotte is located within Mecklenburg County. Mecklenburg County was founded on November 6, 1762. Mecklenburg County was named to commemorate Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz’s marriage to English King George III. Charlotte, the county seat was name after her as well. This is where Charlotte gets the nickname, The Queen City. Interesting, she and George III did not meet until their wedding day, and she did not speak a word of English, nor he a word of German. Nonetheless, by all accounts they had a very successful marriage only strained by George III’s bouts with mental illness.

In 1762 Mecklenburg County, including what is now Cabarrus County, was established from the western part of Anson County to form a new county of over 900 square miles. In 1792 the northeastern part of Mecklenburg County was turned into Cabarrus County. The areas of Mecklenburg County west of the Catawba River were relinquished to Tryon County in 1768.    

The Catawba Indians were the first known inhabitants of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County. They were first noted by Spanish explorers in the 1560s. Charlotte was first settled by people of European heritage in the 1750s. Thomas Spratt and family are reported to have been the first European settlers. The first major roadways in Charlotte where Trade Street and the Great Wagon Road, which eventually became Tyron Street. Trade and Tyron is known today as Independence Square. 

During the American Revolution Charlotte and the surrounding areas were a hotbed of resistance to the British. Lord Charles Cornwallis commanding general of British forces in the south had a great deal of difficulty in dealing with American Continental Army Major General Nathanael Greene’s Continental forces and patriot militia forces. On September 26, 1780, a small contingent of 160 patriot militiamen had an engagement with Cornwallis’ British regulars at what is now called Trade and Tryon Streets. This was later known as the Battle of Charlotte. Cornwallis after 16 days in the Charlotte area unsuccessfully trying to quell the rebellious patriots and General Greene’s forces, was reported to have said on his departure: “Let’s get out of here; this place is a damned hornet’s nest.” Thus, accounting for another popular moniker for Charlotte, “The Hornet’s Nest.”    

Mecklenburg County’s population in the 1790 US Census was 11,395. The population in Mecklenburg County’s 2010 Census was 919,628 people. Mecklenburg County’s estimated population in 2019 was 1,110,356 people. Charlotte’s population was not counted separately until the 1850 US Census, at that time, 1,065 people were counted as living in Charlotte. The 2010 US Census has 731,424 people living in Charlotte. Charlotte’s population was estimated in 2019 at just above 885,000 people. 

Since Charlotte’s founding

The economic base centered around agriculture, with the exception of gold mining. Gold mining began in 1799 when a 12-year-old boy, Conrad Reed, found a 17-pound yellow “rock” in creek bed on his family’s farm in nearby Cabarrus County. This was the United States’ first gold rush. In the proceeding years many more veins of gold were discovered, so much so, that in 1837 the Federal government opened the Charlotte Mint to process the large volume of gold discovered. The Charlotte Mint was opened until 1961 when Confederate troops seized control of the mint at the beginning of the American Civil War. The Reed Gold Mine located in what is now known as Midland, NC was operational up until 1912. The Reed Gold Mine has been designated a National Historic Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.    

The post Civil War years were a boom to Charlotte’s economy. The leading driver of this economic development was the railroad and agriculture. The cotton market and processing were one of the leading economic activities during this period. Textile manufacturing in Charlotte and the surrounding counties drove the manufacturing base along with expanding the railroad transportation hub.

Going into the 20th Century textiles still played an important role in the Charlotte economy. Other light manufacturing sectors, other than textile related, gradually joined in the economic growth of the Charlotte and the region. Since the 1970s Charlotte has developed into a leading financial hub. This began with the growth of North Carolina National Bank (NCNB) leading into the merger with Bank of America. The growth of First Union Bank, with the merger of Wachovia Bank leading to Charlotte being the second largest banking center in the United States behind New York City. Charlotte has seven Fortune 500 companies within its geographic area.
