Streetcar Neighborhoods: Charlotte's First Suburbs & Most Charming Neighborhoods

The late nineteenth century and the early twentieth century saw the rise of the streetcar. This new form of transportation caused a huge expansion in Charlotte as the streetcar network started to expand. New suburbs started to become popular and they became known as streetcar suburbs or streetcar neighborhoods.

Charlotte is home to several of these incredible suburbs, which were once made popular due to the streetcar. Today, the streetcar doesn't make them popular, but it's still a unique part of each of these neighborhoods.

Here's a closer look at some of the streetcar neighborhoods found throughout Charlotte.

Dilworth

The very first streetcar suburb of Charlotte, Dilworth remains as a popular place to call home today. It was built around the streetcar system in the 1890s and would have never been developed in the same way without the streetcar.

Dilworth provides a very historical area to call home. Edward Dilworth Latta developed the area and many of the homes are Bungalow style. However, you will find some Colonial Revival homes, along with a few Queen Anne homes throughout the neighborhood.

Today, Dilworth is one of the most popular places to call home for those working in Charlotte. It's a great place to start a family and provides a variety of homes to fit just about any type of buyer.

What to Expect When You Live Near Lake Wylie

An excellent area to call home, the Lake Wylie area provides plenty of things to do, amazing views, and so much more. If you're considering moving to this wonderful area, you should know what to expect. Here are some of the things you should know about Lake Wylie.

History

The Catawba Dam is responsible for creating the man-made lake known as Lake Wylie. It came from the Catawba Power Company when they decided to build a power plant in India Hook, SC in 1904.

The dam created Lake Catawba, which was used for hydro-electric power. However, in 1905, the Catawba Power Company was swallowed up by the Southern Power Company and the level of the dam was raised. They also build a new Catawba Hydroelectric Station, which opened in 1925. This caused Lake Catawba to go from 668 acres to 13,400 acres in size.

The Southern Power Company merged with Duke Power Company in 1927, which led to some changes. In 1960, the power station received a new name; Wylie Hydroelectric Station. This was in honor of W. Gil Wylie and the lake was renamed Lake Wylie at the same time.

Lake Wylie Location

Found in both North Carolina and South Carolina, Lake Wylie is located right on by the border. It's found near Rock Hill, Charlotte, and Fort Mill. The location isn't far from the intersection of I-77 and I-485.

Plenty of Recreation

One of the main reasons people decide to relocate to Lake Wylie is the recreation. There are plenty of options for recreation here with so many things to do. Of course, boating and fishing are two of the main options, but the lake also offers plenty of camping, swimming, kayaking, events, and so much more.

A Closer Look at the History of Ballantyne

A very affluent neighborhood found in Charlotte, Ballantyne is filled with history. It covers about 2,000 acres of space found very close to the North Carolina/South Carolina border. This popular area was developed by Bissell Companies Inc. and has become one of the largest mixed-use communities in the southeast.

A Hunting Tract, Originally

Ballantyne wasn't always a residential community. It was originally a place for hunting owned by the Harris family. The Ballantyne Corporate Park was the beginning of the change and was started in 1992. This corporate park was started by Johnny Harris and Smoky Bissell.

The Ballantyne Corporate Park becomes one of the most successful master-planned communities in the country. In order for it to be developed 2,000 acres had to be rezoned, which was the largest rezoning in the history of Mecklenburg County.

Crescent Resources had also purchased about 610 acres, at about the same time. This parcel of land would later be turned into the Ballantyne Country Club, along with a residential development.

Ballantyne was established in 1995 when Smoky Bissell payed $20 million for Johnny Harris' shares in the project. Bissell named the community in honor of his great aunt. He later developed The Ballantyne Hotel, which was opened in 2001.

An Art Installation & Recognition

The intersection of Ballantyne Commons and Johnston Road provides a unique art installation commissioned by Boris Tomic, a Yugoslavian artist. It took three years to craft the 30-foot monuments found here, which represents finance, transportation, technology, and the human spirit of Charlotte.

The Ballantyne Corporate Park was named as the International Office Park of the Year in 2010 by the Building Owners and Managers Association...

Lake Norman Secrets: What You May Not Know About Lake Norman

Known by many as the "Inland Sea" Lake Norman is a special place. It was created in the late 1950s and early 1960s as the largest freshwater lake found in the entire state of North Carolina. In fact, most of the power found in Charlotte comes from Lake Norman.

While the size of the lake and the ability to provide power are great, most locals know Lake Norman as the place to go for swimming, boating, and all types of water activities. It's also a very popular spot for home buyers seeking waterfront properties in the greater Charlotte area.

You may be familiar with Lake Norman, but do you know all the secrets of this area? There are several things you may not know about Lake Norman. Let's look at just a few.

Trees Are Planted Yearly

Did you know Duke Power actually has a team of foresters and their job is to plant trees every year? While this isn't their only job, they plant more than 1,400 trees every single year. They also stock the lake with fish and take care of other parts of the lake.

Mosquitoes are Kept in Check

Another thing you may not know about Lake Norman is how the mosquitos are kept in check. Yes, we all know, if you spend time near water and trees, you're bound to end up with mosquito bites, unless you bring a repellent.

The foresters at Lake Norman help you out by using an organic compound to kill those nasty bugs before they ever bite you. This compound is used near shorelines where mosquitos tend to breed and it's not harmful to the environment since it's organic.

Lake Norman is a Four-County Lake

Another little Lake Norman secret, it touches four different counties. You...
