This walk explores the historic heart of Charlotte’s Uptown city center. In the 1800s, four political divisions made up the city’s geographic footprint, and the prosperous neighborhood in the northwest section of the city became the Fourth Ward. Over time, the neighborhood fell into disrepair and remained that way until a newly minted 1970s neighborhood association sought to restore the area’s homes and business properties. Today, this district embraces some of the city’s finest examples of residential architecture by any standards, and on this route you will travel among the Fourth Ward’s best blocks of homes, parks, and attractions. Consider making this walk during the holiday season, when many of the historic homes are open to the public for touring, or in the spring and fall when the weather is most pleasant.
