Myers Park, one of Charlotte’s premier neighborhoods is one of Charlotte's finest planned suburbs. This information, Charlotte NC Myers Park history and demographics, is based on extensive research on the area with a goal to provide clients moving to Charlotte, a sound knowledge base for this beautiful and historical community.
Myers Park retains much of its original flavor and we believe it is a neighborhood worth protecting to the standard set by its founders when it was developed. The original plan for the George Stephens Company, was to form a streetcar community where all residences could walk to the street car. The early plan did not anticipate the development of the automobile to the extent it is used today, and there have been many changes in the neighborhood as Charlotte has grown and traffic has become more of a growth factor.
The homes in Myers Park were handsome and imposing. Most of the first ones were on Queens Road, named for the College (Queens College, left), or Hermitage Road, which led from Queens Road beyond Hermitage Court, developed by Frank Simmons in 1911.
Two of the older residences in Myers Park are historic landmarks. In 1919, James B. Duke, who wanted his daughter, Doris, to spend a few months each year in his native North Carolina, bought and greatly expanded the Colonial Revival style mansion that Z. V Taylor, had built four years earlier.
Designed by C.C. Hook, a prominent local architect, White Oaks (left) is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The McManaway House,(right) which originally stood on W Trade St., was moved to 1700 Queens Road in 1916.
Even in the winter, Myers Park's beauty beholds!
