ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD

 

Located in the shadows of Charlotte’s Uptown, it’s difficult to imagine that Eastover was formerly two dairy farms (also formerly called Myers Park Eastover). This stately community was developed by E. C. Griffith in 1927 and in the Eastover community, history abounds! This community is one of the most desirable areas in Charlotte; the tree-scape in Eastover is simply breathtaking, especially during the spring & summer months when the pear trees & Crepe Myrtles are in full-bloom!

Area physicians who prefer to live near CMC or Novant, two of Charlotte’s top-ranked hospitals, the Eastover location is ideal. Commute time to either CMC (Dilworth/Myers Park location) or Novant (Elizabeth location) is minimal. Those commuting to Uptown or Charlotte’s live/work community, SouthPark, also find the area very accessible.

 


 

EASTOVER HISTORY 

 

From the days of Earle Sumner Draper, the Southeastern US ‘premier’ urban planner, to present day, Eastover has been the home of some of Charlotte’s most elite.  From cotton brokers to bankers to doctors, the facilitators of Charlotte’s growth have resided in Eastover.  E.C. Griffith sought to create Eastover as a competitor to Myers Park. Charlotte was headquarters to 770 textile mills, consuming more cotton than any other sector of the world.  In 1927, the piedmont North and South Carolina, officially surpassed New England in cotton cloth production.  

 

Charlotteans not only owned numerous mills and brokered much of their own cotton for the region, but boasted a large number of bankers, attorneys, stockbrokers, and leading retailers. This elite, upper-income group was the perfect market for a new suburb, branching off of Myers Park, which was not completely developed at that time.  E.C. Griffith made a name for himself as a successful local real estate developer and the company remains one of the oldest in the city, dealing now primarily in commercial real estate. 

 

Eastover Charlotte Neighborhood

 

Early Eastover architecture is primarily Georgian, mixed with Tudor, bungalow and Colonial.  One home, the Reynolds-Gourmajenko House of Tuscan Revival architecture exists on Providence Road; no home like it exists in Charlotte or Mecklenburg County.  As the commute to the city became a bit longer for suburbians, vacant lots quickly filled with new construction, mostly in-keeping with the Georgian theme.  Currently older estates are being extensively renovated and are simply spectacular. 

 

Since the late 1800’s, wealthy Charlotteans have enjoyed living on the fringe of Uptown (formerly Downtown Charlotte) and Eastover was one of the city’s first suburbs.  Sometimes called ‘country homes,’ the Georgian homes in Eastover, Dilworth, Elizabeth and Myers Park were a mere 5¢ fare to Uptown on the electric streetcar. The more impressive suburbs tended to be south or east of town, in essence, due to the fact that the city's only railroad bridges at the time, were on East Trade and East Morehead Streets.  Dozens of trains blocked the tracks on a daily basis creating a blockade surrounding the business district. 

 

Mint Museum Charlotte NCThe Mint Museum of Art, the first branch of the US Mint, was transported to Eastover in pieces from its original location in Uptown to a site donated by E.C. Griffith Company.  Martin Boyer, who orchestrated the move, marked each and every stone before its move. The Civil Works Administration, one of Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal Agencies, provided the labor to resurrect the building as the Mint Museum of Art in 1936.   This was one of Charlotte's first historic preservation operations. 


 

MODERN DAY EASTOVER

 

Nearly 600 homes make up the Eastover neighborhood, which is full of towering hardwoods, winding streets and amazing architecture. Eastover Elementary School is at the ‘heart’ of Eastover.  Small businesses outline the neighborhood on the east and the winding sidewalks provide the perfect, walkable community for Eastover’s residents. 

 

Eastover, not only rich in history, is considered one of Charlotte’s most sought-after neighborhoods where residents enjoy true neighborly relationships.  Families who have resided in Eastover for generations are more than welcoming to newcomers moving to Charlotte from all over the U.S.  These Charlotte luxury homes in Eastover are simply packed with history and character–ahh, if only the walls could talk!
