Located just two miles from Uptown Charlotte lies the quaint Neighborhood of Elizabeth which takes its name from Elizabeth College a small Lutheran College established in 1897 which is now the site of Presbyterian Hospital. It is also home to Independence Park the first Public Park in the City of Charlotte.
As one of Charlotte’s first neighborhoods you’ll find mature trees that canopy many of the streets and homes that are closer with wide sidewalks that make it one of the most popular walking neighborhoods in the city.
An influx of new restaurants have arrived in the area that cater to the growing population that are finding homes in many of the converted bungalows and new town home communities.
The Neighborhood was once the only community served by a trolley first introduced in 1907 making it one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Charlotte. The City is making efforts to re-introduce the trolley that played such a historic part of Elizabeth.
The Elizabeth Community is well known for its two major Hospitals Presbyterian and Mercy. As a result many other medical offices are now located along Randolph Road in Elizabeth.
Along 7th Street there are many older homes that have been converted to shops, restaurants and business making up this desirable neighborhood that is rich in history and character.
