Historic Charlotte is pleased to announce the publication of Historic Charlotte, An Illustrated History of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County written by Dr. Dan Morrill, longtime UNC-Charlotte history professor and Consulting Director of the Historic Landmarks Commission.
This beautifully illustrated coffee table book provides a succinct look at Charlotte from the 1700's to the present day. While not an encyclopedic account, the book chronicles the city and county struggles with growth and describes the consistent forces which have impacted the region's evolution from the beginning.
Read about our earliest days when the Catawba Indians roamed the land, the Scots-Irish settlers who moved down from Philadelphia, the first gold rush in the country, the Revolutionary War battles and up to the economic boom of the 1990s. The book includes some photographs never before seen in print and will be a wonderful addition to your library as well as a wonderful gift.
