Considered one of the finest Historic neighborhoods in Charlotte, Eastover was the first suburb with driveways for motorcars. Beautiful tree-lined streets like Colville Road and Museum Drive are showcases for the grandeur of Eastover’s stately homes. Many of the houses were built in the early part of the 20th century and have been beautifully renovated and restored to their original glory. The neighborhood attracted the leaders who helped shape Charlotte’s growth, including banker Hugh McColl Jr., department store icon John Belk, and the E.C. Griffith family who developed most of the Eastover community. Filled with parks, restaurants and local shops, Eastover is also home to The Mint Museum of Art. Just 15 minutes from Charlotte’s center city, Eastover is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy urban living within a neighborhood setting.
