Discover EASTOVER | Historic Charlotte NC

Eastover, located southeast of Uptown Charlotte, formerly two dairy farms, (also formerly known as Myers Park Eastover), was developed by E. C. Griffith in 1927.  From the days of Earle Sumner Draper, to present day, Eastover Charlotte NC has been the home of some of Charlotte’s most elite.  From cotton brokers to bankers to attorneys, the major facilitators of Charlotte’s growth have resided in Eastover.  E.C. Griffith sought to create Eastover as a competitor to Myers Park.

Charlotte was once 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 entire region but, also boasted a large number of bankers, attorneys, stockbrokers, and leading retailers.  Griffith saw this elite, upper-income group as a potential 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, now dealing primarily in commercial real estate.

Stately home located in Eastover Charlotte NCNearly 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 winding sidewalks provide easy access for the residents.

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 renovated and are truly amazing.

Mint Museum in Eastover Charlotte NC

The 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.

Luxury homes for sale in Charlotte NC EastoverSince the late 1800’s, wealthy Charlotteans have enjoyed living on the fringe of the Uptown (formerly Downtown) area 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 (1890’s).   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.

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.   Visit Eastover and savor a piece of history as your tour stately homes in this lovely historic Charlotte NC neighborhood.

  1. I love visiting Charlotte! We Californians are easy victims to the charm of your southern lifestyle.

    But what I really enjoy is the way to provide information on the various neighborhoods, then display homes for sale in each of the areas. Very nice!

    Don’t get me wrong – I love California and all it has to offer, but it is good to get a perspective on other parts of our country, too.

    Good luck to you and NICE JOB!

  2. This is my kind of community. I love the big yards with mature trees and gardens. This is what living in the south should be.

    • Me too, Larry! Eastover is one of the original historic communities and the tree-lined, winding roads combined with the various architecture in the gorgeous homes, is just a sight to behold as you drive through the community. Thanks for stopping by!
