Myers Park, The Queen City's Crown Jewel
Charlotte NC Myers Park
Myers Park, the crown jewel of the Queen City (Charlotte NC), is nearing her 100th birthday! Just after the turn of the century, George Stephens and John Springs Myers built a relationship with a developer, John Nolen of Massachusetts. Nolen, a graduate of Harvard University, became famous for his urban planning following his design of 21 cities, 22 new towns and hundreds of small neighborhood projects around the country. How fortunate for the Queen City that these men forged such a productive relationship!
Myers Park was planned, using 1,200 acres, in 1911. George Stephens directed the development, with Myers Park soon becoming the destination for affluent families in Charlotte. The varied but, traditional architecture surrounded by immaculate landscaping was well-planned and certainly is a picture of precise attention to detail.
Today, Myers Park
continues to be the
destination neighborhood for the affluent and remains one of the
most beautiful areas in the city. The massive oak trees line the streets, enveloping passersby and residents in pure luxury, stately homes and architectural history. Take a tour of Charlotte
's most sought-after street, Queens Road
and the Myers Park
area, along with several of the Queen City'
s original mansions, including the Duke Mansion.
