Located southeast of Uptown Charlotte, Eastover was the first suburb with driveways for “motorcars.” The neighborhood’s stately homes have long attracted the leaders who helped shape Charlotte’s growth, includingdepartment store icon, John Belk and the E. C. Griffith family, who developed most of the Eastover community. One of the major landmarks is The Mint Museum of Art, located on Randolph Road, and full of rich history as well as unbelievable art and artifacts for visitors to behold. Eastover is also home to Eastover Academy, one of Charlotte’s oldest and most popular Elementary Schools.
The Eastover community is considered one of the finest historic neighborhoods in the Charlotte metro area. Parks, public tennis courts and quaint, local shops and restaurants are all within walking distance of some of Charlotte’s most stately homes. Eastover also features lovely shops such as Colony Furniture, Windsor Hall and Windwood Antiques, Circa Interiors, Paul Simon Clothing, Morrison-Smith and Karat Patch Jewelers, John Dabbs Ltd., and The Buttercup, again, all within walking distance to Eastover homes.
Don’t miss: The Manor Theatre, an old-time movie theater that shows art-house films.
