Incorporated in 1873 as a small mill town, Huntersville has expanded with retail and residential areas to become North Mecklenburg’s largest town. Huntersville is home to the award-winning live-work community of Birkdale Village, which offers shopping, dining and entertainment in a setting of colorful buildings, bubbling fountains and beautiful gardens. Residents enjoy window-shopping along the main street of Birkdale Village and Friday night live music events are popular during the summer. More than just a shopping mecca, Huntersville is bursting with early Mecklenburg history including the historic homesteads Rural Hill and Latta Plantation. Located just minutes from Lake Norman, Huntersville has become a popular place to call home.
