The Arboretum Area

At the intersection of Providence Road (Hwy 16) and NC Highway 51, the Arboretum covers the four intersecting corners.  The Arboretum houses a large shopping center on one corner which was built in the 1980’s and features great restaurants, movie theaters, a grocery store, coffee shops, book stores, fast food restaurants and home furnishing stores. Many of the local communities, which were built around the shopping center in the mid 1980’s and 2000’s are prime Charlotte real estate and highly sought after for those relocating to Charlotte NC.

Matthews NC began as a small farming community in the 1800s. Cotton farmers cleared the land for new plantings, leaving tree stumps in all directions; thus, the first name for the community became known as “Stumptown”.  The history of Matthews runs deep, but most of the town’s 25,000 residents have relocated to Matthews in the past decade, attracted by affordable homes in beautiful new subdivisions, strong schools, lower taxes (which are currently very similar to Mecklenburg County’s tax rate) and the historic, pedestrian-friendly downtown.
