Matthews

Abundant with farmland dedicated to cotton fields cultivated by European settlers.

Welcome to Matthews

Once upon a time, this area was abundant with farmland dedicated to cotton fields cultivated by European settlers. To this day, Matthews has gone above and beyond in conserving original sites from the 1800s. The dozens of nationally registered historic buildings that can be found here make for a charming North Carolina experience and a vivid trip down memory lane.
 
In this town, it’s likely you’ll strike up conversations on the corner of the crosswalk — and if there’s ever a need to change up the pace, Uptown Charlotte is less than 30 minutes away. Mint Hill real estate is an attractive opportunity to invest in a well-rounded community inspired by growth, while still welcoming retirees, young families, and commuters.
