Block By Block: Charlotte's Historic West End


Add to Charlotte’s popular “South End” and our growing “North End,” the “Historic West End.” As uptown continues to flow outside its boundaries, the area along West Trade and Beatties Ford Road is beginning to benefit. Home to the city’s oldest African-American neighborhoods, home buyers and developers are eyeing the West End but that provides challenges to those who want to preserve its character, history and affordability. Can all three be accomplished?
