Q^WWW^ 



BY CHARLES R. JONES. 




Y WAY of proper introduction of the VVork which is now 
^^^^ presented to the business community of Charlotte and vi" 
•::^vX^ cinity, and which is intended more to be a commercial 
history of Charlotte than any thing else, it has been thought emi- 
nently proper to introduce the reader to the objects of the book by 
a short, clear and concise history of the livest city in the State of 
Xorth Carolina, if not in the South. 

The writer is profoundly sensible of the magnitude of the under- 
taking, and regrets that sufficient time i"? not allowed to dwell more 
at length upon the subject under consideration. At some future 
time the proprietors propose to repeat the effort to get up a Directo- 
ry of the thriving little city of Charlotte, and at that period a better 
time and opportunity will present itself for enlarging upon the ideas 
and thoughts now, for the first time hastily and imperfectly thrown 
together. With these few remarks as an apology the writer com- 
mits himself to the task before him : 

Eighteen hundred and seventy-five! Magic words. They carry 
with them the history of Charlotte since the 15th day of January, 
Anno Domini 1 707— the indelible marks made on the pages of mod- 
ern annals for one hundred and eight years, and which are pregnant 
with import today. They carry us back to the traditions of the 
14 



130 

past, when the surrounding- countiy, now the most prosperous of 
any p )rtion of Nm;,Mi:T!ra.rbJina, was inhabited by tlie red men of the 
forest; who gaUs^'ed around their camp fires, in the dim twilight at 
evening, to sn^ke the e:iluiiiet of peace, or to take counsel together 
md prepare^r warfare upon tJie pale face, who had invaded their 
hunting gjrounds. We write t«jclay of the place 

" Where on the red umn's faded trail, 

The erifiiiie smokes m^d raves, 
And city lots are stakecT^ur salt 

Above aUL- In d i a n y 

ighteen hundred and seventy-fil^e— these talismanic figures carry 
us back beyond the time when them had been no Mecklenburg Dec- 
laration of Independence, and'^^befom a generation of freemen had 
been born on the Western Continenl. They recall the time when 
{Charlotte was a cross roads stopping ©lace, for the weary horseback 
traveler, or where the sturdy tScotchilrish yeoraenry, who in a few 
generations changed the face of the cJuntry from a howling wilder- 
ness to a fertile, well regulated, prosperous agricultural and commer- 
cial community, and where these earjlj' settlers met periitdically to 
participate in general muster of the Hiilitia, or in the absence of rail- 
road and telegraphs, and with u'mil facilities little belter than 
none, to talk over the events of tli/^day. 

The city of Charlotte was narn^ in honor of Charlotte Augusta, 
daughter of Queen Carolinea*m George IV., and who was one of the 
most beautiful andjiccuwrpTished princesses of the Georgian dy- 
nasty, and in early times it was situated by nature at the intersec- 
tion of the principal highways of travel. One road leading from the 
mountain country of Western Carolina, to the markets of Fayette- 
ville in this State, and Cheraw, Camden, and even Charleston, in 
South Carolina, at what is now known as Independence Square, at 
the infensection of Trade and Tryon streets, this old thoroughfare 
was crossed by a' highway equally as in)portant, leading from the 
settlements in the then far West, eastward to the towns of Salisbury, 
Greensboro, Hillsboro, Ealeigh, Newberne, &q., and it was early 
noted for the success of those of its inhabitants who, in its earliest 
days, chose to engage in tavern keeping. 

The surrounding country was settled t)y the Scotch Irish, and early 
took the lead in the erection of schools and churches, and long before 
the present city of Charlotte was laid out as a town, an academj', 
called Queen's College wiisJoeated here, which was the chief seat of 
learning at that time in all the Southern States. And although 
Queen's College is now only remembered through the dim light of 
tradition, that noble institution of learning which sheds its benig- 
nant light throughout this whole section of country at Davidson 
College, may be said to be its lineal successor, and which is ably aid- 
ed in the cause of education by the Carolina Military Institute, the 
Charlotte Institute for young ladies, the City Graded School, presi- 
ded over by Rev. J. B. Boone, and the schools of Capt. W. A. Bar- 
rier, and others. 

The County of Mecklenburg was formed from the County of An- 
son in the year 1762, and in 1767 the town of Charlotte was located. 
The original deed conveying the tract of land upon which the City 
now stands, was signed by George Augustus Selwyn, by his agent, 
Henry E. McCulloch, the ]5th day of January, 1767, and contained 
three hundred and sixty acres, in the following words: 

"To all to whom these Presents shall come, Greeting-: 

Know ye that George A. Selwyn, by Henry E. McCulloch. for and in con- 
consideration of the sum of ninety pounds lawful money, and for other good 



181 

causes, me thereunto moving, have bartjained and sold unto Ahraham Alexan- 
der, Thos. Polk and John Prohock, as Trustees and Dirgciors of the town of Char- 
lotte, and their successors, a certain tract of landJyiqt; i)[i the waters of Neil's and 
Garrison's Creek. Beginning; at a wiiite oak afc^out 150 yards from Thos. Polk's 
line runnins thence North 40 decrees West 2«» poles to a pine, then South 40 de- 
grees West 240 poles to a hickory, then Souil? 40 degrees East 240 poles to black

Soon aftei- the town was laiffout a small logf building was erected 
at what is now the intersectiol of Trade and Tryon streets, and im- 
mediately in the center of wlat is now known as Independence 
Square. This buildino: was 101% used as a court house and for church 
purpo-ses. In 1871, the war between Harmon Husbands and the 
Regulators of Alamance countv%and Governor Tryon, Provisional 
Governor of what was then kiiowivas the Colony of the Carolinas, 
commenced, and soon Ibund active synipathy among- tiie patriotic 
people living in the vicinity of Charlotte. This symi)athy in behalf 
of the Alamance Regulators became so great, and the desire to ab- 
solve allegiance to the mother country, became so strong that a 
series of meetings of the citizens of the county was held during the 
fall of 1774, and the Spring of 1775, to consider what was best to be 
done. Tradition informs us that at a meeting which convened in Char- 
lotte on the 19th day of May, 1775, and which was protracted until 
the 21st, solemnly and formally declared Independence from the 
British Crown, and which is now claimed to be the first Declaration 
of American Inde{)eiidence ever made on American soil. This Dec- 
laration was probably hastened by hearing of the news of the battle 
of Lexington and Concord, in Massachusetts. These battles were 
but a repetition of the battle of Alamance, in jS'orth Carolina, and 
had no object of Independence in view, but the sequel proved that 
the colonists were ripe for revolution, and that the people of .Meck- 
lenburg were first to catch the spirit of inspiration, and proclaim to 
the world their devotion to principle, pledging their " word, their 
fortune and their most sacred honor " in their maintenance. 

"Phere have been those wlio would rob the old North State of her 
merited glory in regard to this immortal action of the patriots of 
1875. NorthCarolina herself has given birth to sons who would 
tear the burnished jewel from the diadem of their old motlier, but 
we who live atnong the trailitions of the past century; who, uninflu 
enced by the sympathies of partisanship, are willing to take the 
facts as they stand recorded on the written and unwritten pages of 
history, cannot, dare not disbelieve that Dr. Brevard wrote the first 
dednration of Independence, which was ever inspired by the iove 
of liberty in an American heart, and that this declaration was duly 
signed by the delegates assembled and enthusiastically ratified on 
the 2()th day of ^lay, 1875, by the people then and there assembled. 
Writing as "we are almost on the eve of the Centennial Anniversary 
of that most eventful and important occasion, with the experience 
and traditions of a hundred years, and at a time when extraordinary 
preparations are being made to observe the anniversary with proper 



132 

honors, none but an insane person could doubt it. But this is 
neither time nor place to vindicnte or support this or that theory. 
Be ours the duty to give facts and pass on 

The town of Charlotte was during the long seven years war for 
Independence, which followed the declaration, al one time in the 
hands of the British, who met with such opposition among the |)eo- 
l>\e, that one of their chief officers, in derision designated them 
" hornets." This appellation to-day so far from being a term of con- 
tempt, is regarded by the people as one of honor and patriotism^ 
and as such must be handed down to future generations. 

At this late day it is almost impossible to go back and gather up 
the hi.story of Charlotte further than for fifty or sixty years, except 
on such rare and important occasions as the L'Uth .May, 1875, and it 
may be said that the history of the place whs uneventful for the 
next fifty years succeeding that date, but fifty years in a town in 
North Carolina often makes a very material difference, and Lhar^ 
lotte proves no exception to tlie rule 



CHARLOTTE FIFTY YEARS AGO. 

The chief men of the town of Charlotte fifty years ago, were Jo- 
seph Wilson, John Irwin, Wm. Davidson, Wm, Smith, iSamuel Mc-- 
Comb, Dr. David R. Dunlap, Eli Springs, Robert J. Dinkens, James 
Cowan, Thomas Vail, Dr. Robert McKenzie. Wm. Carson, John Mc- 
Quag, Dr. Wm. Long, Green Kendrick, Samuel Love, .lames Tor- 
rence, W"m. J. Alexander, Thomas Wilson, Allen Baldwin, Dr. Sam- 
uel Henderson, James Hutchinson, A. (iraham, John Sloan, Caleb 
Norwood, Jame.s T. Asbury, R, M. Sterling, Wm. Rudisjll, Edward 
M. Bronson, Robert Sloan and David Parks. '■'. ?,. / 

These with their families and servants, constituted nearly if not 
quite, the entire population of the town of Charlotte. 

The Court House stood in the middlf^ of the piiblic square, formed 
by the intersection of Trade and Tryon streets | it was a square 
brick building, hipped roof (the old log Iniilding which existed in 
1775, had been removed) terminating with a cupalo on top. The 
whipping post, stocks and pillows, stood in the middle of the street 
between where Walter Brem's hardware store, and Burwell's drug 
store are now, in full view of the judge's bench, where he could see 
his sentence executed. For many years the Sheriff and Clerks of 
the Superior and County Courts, and Register of Deeds, kept their 
offices at their houses in the country. The Sheriff was James Wil- 
son, who lived about six miles from town on the lawyer's road. The 
Superior Court Clerk was Gen. George Graham, who lived two mWes 
and a-half west from town, where Mr. Stewart now lives. The 
County Clerk was Isaac Alexander, four miles south>-east of Char- 
lotte in the Sharon neighborhood. The Register of Deeds was Wm. 
B. Alexander, nine miles north of Charlotte. All these offices were 
kept in the country until the Legislature pa.ssed an act requiring 
them to be kept at the Court House. Then it was that the upper 
story of the Court House was cut up into offices, and thereby spoil- 
ing the only good ball room in town, as all the public balls or dances 
were held in tlie second story of the Court House, and all the preach- 
ing was done in the lower story in the Court room. Ministers of all 
denominations, when they came to Charlotte, preached in the Court 
House. There was not a single church in the place, nor Avas there 
a minister of the gospel living here. The nearest preacher was Rev- 
Samuel C. Caldwell, who officiated at Sugar Creek, in the old log 
church that stood near the public road where the old 'grave yard i;? 



133 

iiiul very near whe-re the ^ateentersthej^raveyard. Mr. Caldwell was 
buried under the spot where the uld pulpit' stood. That was the 
place where the few ehureh-goiiijj people of Charlotte generally at- 
tended, when there was no preaching in the Court Hou.-e. The tirst 
church built in Charlotte, stood on the ground where the 1st Presby- 
terian Church now stands. That too was used by all denominations 
of ministers— and it was built without reference to any denon)ina- 
tion—and remained in that condition until it was tinally put in 
charge of the Presbytery 

On what is now known as Second Ward, there was an old wooden 
building standing on the south east corner of Trade and Tryon sts. 
known as the old Catterson or MiGibony store-house. It was a two 
r-tory building, and not occupied at that time. JSonie sears after- 
wards it was titled up and occupied as a store by William .-niith, 
who was also post master. The next house on Tryon was an old 
two story building with piazza extending into the street and whs 
occupied by Jatnes Cowan, as a store. Next to that and joining it, 
on the lot now occupied by the Central Hotel, stood another old 
two story wooden building occupied and kept as a hotel by old 
Thomas Houston. This hotel some years afterwards wns kmnvn as 
the Watson House. The next house was a one ■«tory, with sharp 
gable end to the street, elevated about four feet from the ground, this 
was occupied by an ol(» batchelor, John McQuay, as a grog shop, 
where nearly all the bi^ fights, (and there many of them,) originated. 
The next house below was known as the wid(<w Emerson's Tavern, 
with a long piazza and balcony extending over the side walk, or 
where the side walk is now, it was raised s(une three or four feet 
trom the ground, and was entered from the street by tour or five 
steps. This house stood on the ground or vacant lot now owned by 
John L. Morehead, on Tryon street. The next house stood on the cor- 
ner of what is now known as Tryon and 4th street, where Carson 
it Crier's store is, and w.ts occupied as a hotel by Samuel McComb ; it 
was a long hou^e two stories, i)ainted white, with piazza in front ex- 
tending tlie whole length. This Wiis considered the principal hotel 
of the town. The next house ^stood on the lot below, and was an old 
one story building, owned and occupied by an old Dutch woman 
named Mi-s. Jarret. The next lot below was vacant. The next 
house stood on the corner where Dr. Bratton now lives and was 
known as the Dr. Thomas Heriderson hojse. It was a two story 
building, j)ainted white, and was the last house on that side of Try' 
on street. The ground below that on which A. B. Davidson now 
lives, was entirely vacant, and called the old College Green, wheie 
th.e military held their general musters. 

. On south-east corner of Trade and Tryon streets there was a small 
house used as an office, that stood on the street half-way down what 
is now the Central Hotel property. That was the last house on that 
wide of Trade street ext«pt to Caleb Norwood's tanyard, and which 
is now the dower of Mrs. Brown. The old buildings were burned 
on the IGth April of the present year, and may be said to have been 
the last house of which we write, to su'-cumb to the ravages of time 
and circumstances. These were all the houses standing in Second 
Ward, except a few stables in the back lots. The old Queen's Col- 
lege Spring was then at the foot of a very steep hill, on the lots now 
occupied by ]Mrs. Gilford, and the gas works. The hollow has been 
tilled up, and the spring walled up and converted into a well, which 
is now used by Mrs. Gifford. 

A very large old frame building stood on the lower end of the 
IIen<lerson lot, just above where Mrs. Oifibrd now lives, which was 



134 

said to he tlie remains of the old Queen's College, moved there by 
Dr. Thomas Henderson, not more tlian 50 feet from its original posi- 
tion and used by him as a stable and barn. 

At the north west corner of Trade and Tryon streets, known as 
the" Irwin corner," was the same liouse that stands thert- now; it 
was occupied by John Irwin, but his undergone many clianges,bolli 
by addition and ^ubstraction. The large room nnv occupied by Dr. 
John ;McAden, as a drug store then composed Mr. Irwin's store 
room, counting room, dining room and parlor. On the next lot lie- 
low Tryon street known as the " David Parks lot," was a small ouh 
story brick store-house built and occupied as a store by James Tor- 
rence. This was the only brick house in Cliarlotte, except the 
Court Hou-e. The next lot wasownedby "Merchant Billy Allison," 
as he was called, who kept a store in the little house now occupied 
as a shoe maker shop by Mr. Cohn. 

The next lot, now known as the "Owens property," was owned 
and occupied by Archibald Prew, who was a revenue otHcer and 
United States tax collector, and had a large store about where James 
Harty's dw^dling house stands. The next lot, where Mrs. John 
Springs now lives, was owned and occupied by a man named Mitches, 
carriage m^ker. I'he ne.xt hou.se was the jail where the present jail 
now stands. It was a two story wooden building, painted red ; there 
was a rough fence around it nor was tliere any of the lot cleared, 
except a small spot where the jail stood. The balance of it was 
grown up in bushes and large trees. The ."^tatesville road turned off 
from the Salisbury roafi just about where the Parsonage stands, and 
passed in rear of the jail, thence a straight course out by where 
Frank Snider lives. The next house was on the lot where iiansom 
(rray now lives. It was a long one story log house, with a partition 
in the middle. One end was used as a dwelling and the other end 
as a hatter-shop, and belonged to a man named Thomas Capps 

There was no other liouse on Tryon street to the lot now owned 
and occupied by Mrs. Rufus Johnston, where there was a black- 
smith shop which stood on the Salisbury road, and a log dwelling 
hou.se and well some distance in the rear. This was owned and oc- 
cupied by a man named Dick Mason, who owned all the land on 
that side as far as the branch where the Lincoln Depot now is. 

At the Irwin corner, and down on Trade street West, the first 
house below the Irwin lot was tlie Cowan house, a long wooden 
two-story building, with piazza and balc(tny extending the whole 
length, overing theground wliere thesidewalk is now ; then outside 
of that in front, at)out the width of the sidewalk, or some eight or 
ten feet distant from the piazza, stood a row of large China trees, 
extending the whole lengtli of the house. Ttiis house occupied the 
ground now covered by Richard Moore's tin and hardware store," 
Frankenthall's store and James Harty's ('hina Store, and was known 
as the "Cook Tavern," where General Washington lodged on his 
return from his S()Uthern tour, after the Revolutionary war. 

The next house was on the lot now occupied by Dr. C. J. Fox, but 
it was of much more recent date than the other part of the town. 
It was built by Dr. Robert .McKluze, who lived there and had a 
large practice in town and surrounding country. 

There was no other hou.se in what is now known as Fourth Ward, 
except Allen Baldwin's, who lived in a small hou.seon the lot where 
Dr. Cureton now lives, and not far from the spot where Dr. Cureton's 
house now stands. Baldwin was a tanner, and his tan yard was 
where Mr. F. A. McNinch's house now stands. The old graveyard 
is situated in this ward, where all the old citizens of the town were 



130 

ixu-ied, aiul among tliein was Col. Polk, who, it is said, read the Dec- 
laration of Independence on t!:e :2()tli of May, 1775. 

On the corner of Trade and Tryon streets, "now occupied by ji^ranite 
row, stood an old building-, owned and occuuied by VAm. jiavid.'son. 
The liouse was a two-story wooden building, painted; the corner 
room of the tirst story was used as a store-room. The next house 
was a small wooden building- at the lower end of the same lot, and 
stood on the spot where Dal. lligier'sconfectionery now stands. This 
liouse had been used for many years as a store house, and then u^ed 
as a banking house— a branch of the old Newbern Bank, VVm. Da- 
vidson, Cashier and Manager ; Duncan Campbell was the clerk and 
Teller. This was the tirst bank established in Chailotte. The next 
adjoining- lot on Tryon street, where tlie First >^atioMal Dank, and 
McAden's building n^AV stands, was owned and occupied by Joseph 
Wilson, a distinguished lawyer, and the father of Mrs. Wm! I. Alex- 
ander. On the lower side of this lot, on the spot now covered by 
tlie banking room, was a store house, one story, occupied subse- 
qently by David Parks, when he first came to ('harlotte It was also 
the same store house in which Green Kendrick did business. Next 
lielow that, and adjoining- this store house, was a red house owned by 
Wm. Carson, in which VVm. Smith carried on the mercantile busi- 
ness, for many years: Wm. Carson also had a store there afterwards. 
In the rear (jf this store house was a building used by Wm. Carson, as 
a barter shop, where nearly all the hats worn in the county were 
made, and wh^re all coon skins and other furs were sold. The next 
lot, now owned by Col. Wm. Johnston, was then owned and occupied 
by a man named ]\IcBi ide, and afterwards by Dr. Long, who moved 
bacK to Salisbury. The next lot below was on the corner of Fourth 
and Tryon streets, and was owned by Wm. Smith, who lived there 
with his family until he died. On the lower side of the same lot on 
Tryon street, stood Wm. Smith's tailor shop, where he employed 
several hands and carried on an extensive business. On the spot 
where Col. H. W. Guion's house now stands, was a very old one-story 
log iiouse, weather-boarded with very broad plank; the fioor was on 
a level with the street. Thi-s house was occupied by old .Mrs. Wis- 
hart, the oldest person in town. The next house was an old log 
blacksmith shop that stood with the end to the street, on the lot 
where Wm. Boyd now lives, below Mr.'Guion's lf)t. On the. same lot 
a little back from the street, was a small log house, in which the 
widow of Dr. Bivens then lived and taught a little school. The next 
and last house on Tryon street, was a long one-story house, with a 
piazza in front, that stood on the corner of 3d and Tryon streets, 
where Mrs. Young's house now stands, and was occupiecl by a tailor 
named Duff Walker. 

Go back to the Southwest corner of Trade and Tryon streets, and 
down the side of Trade, the first house after the Davidson corner 
hou.se on the same lot was a two-story log house u.sed as a kitchen, 
that stood on the spot now covered by Koopmann's store. On the 
lower end of the lot where Eobt. F. Davidson's furniture store is 
now, was a frame house with end to the street, used as a stable. On 
the lot where Jas. H. Henderson's st(..re is now, was a small one story 
house, said to have been Joseph H. Wilson's law office, when he 
lived on the McAden lot. The next and last hou.se on that side, was 
an old blacksmith shop, that stood on the corner of Trade and Church 
streets. 

Thf re were no other houses in the third ward except a gin house 
that stood on the corner of the lot where James H. Henderson now 
lives, and a few stables and barns.

Such was Charlotte only a half century aso, and we have dwelt 
somewhat at length upon it, in order that the contrast which we 
shall present nereafter of Charlotte as it is now, will be the more 
apparent. 

CHARLOTTE BECOMES A CITY. 

At the beginning of the late war between tlie States Charlotte had 
grown to be quite important in the sisterhood of towns throughout 
the South. There were good and important reasons why thisshould 
be so, prominent among which was the fact that it was situated in 
the heart of a rich and prosperous agricultural community. There 
is another fact whii-h is kown to day only by a few, which in times 
past, has added very much to its prosperity^ The city may be said 
U) be located in an amphitheatre, and is surrounded with a circle of 
hills or elevations, or more properly still Of gentle undulations in 
the surface of the topography of its surroundings. The soil is rich 
in gold bearing properties, and within one mile from the public 
square gold mining has been carried on, which has netted soinething 
over two millions of d(»llars, mo.st of which has gone to make up 
the wealth of the city in times past, but of this we shall speak more 
fully hereafter. Besides the two reasons just named, we may state 
that tne character of the people which Charlotte and vicinity has 
produced, may be added as a guarantee of past, pre.sent and con- 
tinued prosperity. They are industrious and active to a fault, which 
under ordinary circumstances always brings success. 

THE UNITED STATES BRANCH MINT. 

Within a radius of twenty miles from Charlotte there are not less 
than one hundred gold mines, and we have the best authority for' 
.saying that up to 1848 (before the important discovery of the Cali- 
fornia gold fields) they ju-educed one-half of the goUrcoined in the 
United States. Not more than a dozen of the.se mines are now in 
operation. The establishment of the branch mint here became a 
necessity, »n(l in the year 183-5 an Act of Congress provided for its 
erection. This action on the part of Congress was the outgrowth of 
a long and persistent agitation in the gold i)roducing districts of this 
State and South Carolina. The history of this agitation dates back 
as early as 18o(l, when the numerous body of miners in the counties 
of Mecklenburg, Gaston, An.son, Cabarrus, Rutherford, Davidson, 
and Montgomery loudly complained of thee.xtortions practiced upoil 
them in selling their gold to the merchants or to the banks, and of 
the delay incident to the transportation of the bullion to Philadelphia 
for coinage, four months oftentimes elapsing before returns were 
received. These complaints induced the General Congress at the 
session of IS30 to appoint a special committee to investigate the 
subject. This cominittee through its Chairman, Gideon Glenn, made 
an exceedingly interesting and valuable report. Among other state- 
ments given was this: that the annual production of gold of this 
State was half a million dollars, the cost of this production being 
estimated at $150,000; a mint was recommended. 

The history of gold production in North Carolina, however, dates 
back to the year 1799, in which year Conrad Reed, son of John Reed, 
of Cabarrus Count.y, found a piece of native g<jld ''as large as a 
smoothing iron;" its value was not then es'en guessed, and it was 
put to the commonest uses, and finally sold for $8o0. This same 
locality, the Reed Mine, was for many years prolific in large masses,

the largest indeed known till the discovery of gold in California and 
Australia. The following table of nuggets found at the Reed Mine 
from Wheeler's History ol" North Carolina is apropos:

In the meantime large areas had yielded the precious melaLs hi unex- 
ami)led ahundanee, and fresli fields were perpetually discovered in the 
more Eastern counties and westward to the mountains, to the North in 
A'irginia and Southward to Alabama, while the enterprise of the miners 
led them to the discovery of the veins, the sources of the riches they had 
hitherto extracted from the "Placers." 

To the "old inhal)itants " this "tlush"" time of gold mining is still a 
fruitful theme. 

The efibrt to secure a Mint was, however, unsuccessful till the ilalc 
T o^iven above, but private coinage was practiced by the Bechtlers of Ruth- 
erfoi-dton. These coins, or more properly "tokens," were honestly pre- 
l)ared and had a large circulation, but were too poorly and rudely made 
either to wear well or to obviate counterfeiting. They were of the de- 
nominations of $1.00 $2.50 and $5.00. At pi'esent they are rarely met 
with. 

The establishment of this Mint by the Act of March 3d, 1835, was se- 
cured only by a species "log rolling," by which branch Mints were also 
established at Dahlonega, Ga., and at New Orleans. 

* This Branch was opened for business on December 4th, 1837, and had 
an encouraging amount at once. The succeeding years also showed a 
large amount of work. 

In July, 1844, the Mint was bvn-nt at mid-day. The institution barely 
sui-vived this disaster, for its enemies striving to make it a party as well 
as a public matter, strenuously opi)Osed tlie rebuilding of it. The unre- 
mitting endeavors of the Hon. I). M. Barringer, who then represented 
this District in Congress, finally triumphed over these obstacles, and the 
vears 1845-'4t> witnessed the erection of a new structure (the present 
building) at a cost of about $40,000. 

From this period till the war, the history of this Branch was unevent- 
ful. Its business was not large, as we are now accustomed to speak of 
Mint operations, or as we see them practiced at Philadelphia or at San 
Francisco, nevertheless this centeijwas an important source of the circu- 
lating medium of the conntrv.

tion on the part of our law makers^ 

THE COMMERCIAL INTERESTS OF CHARLOTTE. 

Up to, and even to the close of the late War, the commercial inte- 
rests of Charlotte were of much smaller significance than they now 
are. Ten years of trade which has poured into her lap since the last 
gun was fired, on the 24th day of April, 1865, has added materially 
to the wealth, influence, prosperity and pro.spectsof the city of 
Charlotte. 

There is no channel of commerce which has added so much to our 
wealth as the cotton interest; and in mentioning it our only regret 
is that owing to the limited time now allowed us, and the limited 
space at our command, remarks under this head must be necessarily 
incomplete and imperfect. He who would write up a subject so 
voluminous,, and so important in the past, present and future of the 
city of Charlotte, must possess a fertile mind and a ready pen. It 
was said before the war that "King Cotton*' sat in the sanctuary, 
and ruled the commercial destiny of men with a magic wand, and 
his presence and his power has been certainly felt in Charlotte. 

Up to the year 1852, the cotton raised in the vicinity of Charlotte 
found a market by being hauled to Fayetteville, Camden, Cheraw, 
or to Charleston, by wagons; or found a market among a small 
number of manufacturer.^. At that time the then village of Char- 



140 

lotte was introduced to the commercial world by the completion of 
the Charlotte and Columbia Railroad, which was •^he first railroad 
ever completed to Charlotte. This iron chain connected at once with 
the markets of the world, via Charleston, Wilmington and Ports- 
tnouth, and over the Wilmington and Manchester, and the Wil- 
mington and Weldon railroads to the northern markets, in which 
condition it remained until the completion of the North Carolina 
Railroad in lSo5, after which, in the year 1859, the Western Division 
of the Wilmington, & Charlotte Ruth. Railroad was extended from 
Charlotte to Lincolnton, which railroad, now the Carolina Central 
has, within the past six months, been completed from Wilmington 
to Charlotte, and the Western Division extended to Buffalo, in 
Cleaveland county. In I860, the Atlantic, Tennessee and Ohio 
Railroad, originally intended to run from the seaboard, on the At- 
lantic Coast at Georgetown, South Carolina, to Jonesboro, Ten- 
nessee, was chartered, and the following year, was completed be- 
tween Charlotte and the village of Statesville, on the Western 
North Carolina Railroad, and in the county of Iredell, and since 
the war, it has been placed upon the great thoroughfare of trade 
and travel from N(jrth to South, by the construction of the Rich- 
mond and Atlant-J Air Line Railroad, connecting Charlotte with 
Atlanta, Georgia, thus making the city of <'harlotte one of the 
greatest railroad centres in the Southern States, which added to the 
fact, that it is situated in the midst of one of the finest agricultural, 
mineral, and productive regions known in the United States, and 
abounding in facilities for manufactories blessed with a salubrious 
climate, equally free from the malarial diseasesof the I )wlands, and 
the influenzas of tiie mountains, and peopled with a hanly, intelli- 
gent and industrious population, making it a nucleus upon which 
one of the most powerful inland cities will ever be constructed 
upon this continent. But to return to the cotton interest, which is 
here superior to all others. 

The rapid growth of the city since the war is owing greatiy to the 
fostering fif this element of our wealth by the citizens and merchants 
of Charlotte. 

The scope of country of which Charlotte is the commercial cotton 
centre, or more properly the commercial metropolis, includes a scope 
of country covering fourteen counties in North Carolina and at least 
eleven in South Carolina. Our railroads have been zealous in foster- 
ing tb.e cotton interest here, and step by step, under the various 
influences the city, as a cotton market has advanced until she has 
reached the exalted position of being the first and principal cotton 
market in the State. This is no idle, presumptive boast, and one of 
which every citizen of Charlotte is justly proud, and is proved by 
by the report o't' the city officials, whose business it is under our 
municipal regulations to attend to this matter alone. 

It is pleasant for us to contemplate that no city in North Carolina, 
or even in the South, has commenced and grown with a steadier 
growtli of power and usefulness than that of which we write. Fos- 
tered by the cotton industries we have been able to build up such 
railroad faciliti.es as to take a place in the front rank in commerce 
among the cities of the South. Situated as wejiave .said in the centre 
of a highh'^ intelligent and thrifty population, the city has always 
been intimately connected with agriculture, as the principal mart of 
our staple,|and when in future years; when we shall be able to utilize 
the God-given privileges with which we are blessed, and convert 
her into a manufacturing town, as will most assuredly be done, we 
may justly look forward to a brighter career of prosperity than has 



141 

ever dawned upon us. The cotton interest always has and always 
will underlie the great pillars of our success, and that we have pros 
pered; that the fiirmers have been encouraged to do double duty by 
the high prices of tlie sta|>Ie in this market; that upon the whole 
we liave a cheerful retrospect, and a still more hopeful outlook for 
the future is owing, in the main, to the fact that this industry has 
been sustained and encouraged by energy, perseverance, and pluck 
on the part of both producers and buyers of the staple., which has in 
a measure made the city of Charlotte what it is to-day. 

Every indjstry has its history, and it is to this we now turn. 
About a quarter of a century ago (and this brief period is still fresh 
in the minds of many whose names may be found in another part 
of this book), the cotton trade was first commenced in Charlotte. 
Up to that time whatever cotton was produced in the country which 
was not consumetl immediately through the aid of the old-fashioned 
loom, wheel and cards was forced to seek a market either|§in 
Charleston, Cheraw, Camden, Fayetteville or Petersburg. When 
the completion of the Charlotte and Columbia Railroad took place 
in 1851^, for the first time in the history of Charlotte she had an out 
l(-t — a highway to the sea. Three years later and the iron chain 
which connects us with Norfolk, Va., was finished, and a stimulus 
given to the cotton trade which no other advantage could have con- 
ferred. Situated at the terminus of both roads, competition between 
them at once enabled the cotton dealer here to pay the very highest 
possible price for the staple. Since that time railroads have been 
added to, until we have the net work of roads alluded to in a former 
part of this sketch. Over the Richmond and Atlanta Air Line Rail- 
road, the great short route between New York and New Orlean,s, and 
which penetrates some of the richest country tributary to our mar- 
ket, Charlotte has received an immense impetus to the cotton trade. 
The Atlantic, Tennessee and Ohio Railroad has poured a considera- 
trade into our market. The upper section of the Carolina Central, 
leading from Lincolnton to Charlotte, has been equally instrumental 
in increasing the cotton trade here. Countless numbers of bales have 
been brought to Charlotte from the direction of Chester and Rock 
Hill, in South Carolina, over the Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta 
Railroad, while the North Carolina Railroad gives the people all 
along its line, from Charlotte to Lexington, however paradoxical it 
may .seem, a market in Charlotte for their cotton. 

In 1855, the annual sales of cotton on this market was less than 
three thousand bales. In 1860, on account of this railroad influence, 
the trade had gradually become of more importance, and had reach- 
ed twelve thousand bales. The four years of the war (in this as in 
nearly all industries), paralyzed all tliis interest, except to furnish 
such orders as were needed for home consumption, and the market 
gradually weakened until it almost ceased to exist. 

With the crop of 18GG, business in this line was again resumed, 
with about the same amount on the market as in 1860 — 12,000 bales 
—since which time it has increased annually until for the fiscal 
year ending August 31st, 1874, the actual .sales reached forty thous- 
and bales. The present year, beginning September 1st, 1874, and 
ending August 31st, 1875" it is thought with a smaller average crop, 
the sales will not fall tar short of fifty thousand bales, some thirty- 
five thousand bales at this date— May 1st— having already been of- 
fered and sold on this market. These figures show a marvelous 
increase in the trade, which, when properly known, must certainly 
still further augment the sales. 



142. 



CHARLOTTE AS A WHOLESALE MARKET. 

Contrary to theg'eiieral laws of trade, (,^har!otte has become one of 
tlie leading!: and important grocery and wholesale markets of the 
.South, We say contrary to the general laws of trade, because gro- 
ceries and goods at wholesale are generally very heavy articles of 
merchandise, and the people are in the habit of buying such goods 
in quantities at our sea-ports, where dealers fiave the advantage of 
shipping facilities. Water carriage has, in all Hges, been the cheap- 
est mode of transportation, and it will probably ever remain so. 
Every inland city then, in business where freights are heavy, must 
have some advantage to enable her to compete successfully with her 
more fortunate sisters, or she will fall behind in the race for prefer- 
ment. Wliile Charlotte cannot boast of a sea-port, she is the termi- 
nus of several of the leading railroads, which go to ujake up the 
iron chain that links the destiny of our common country into one 
of general interest. Ships laden with the famed wealth of the Indies 
do not pour their treasures into her bosom until they have passed 
through other hands; or, if the merchandise has been bought and 
imported by our own merchants, as it is in many instances, it must 
pay a small tribute to the port of entrance, but by being able to get 
through rates, the merchants of Charlotte are able to sell such goods 
at a very slight advance on prime cost— so slight, indeed, that Char- 
lotte has gained the reputati'^n, and justly too, of being the cheap- 
est wholesale market in the South away irom the seashore. She en- 
joys the enviable advantage of being located at the terminus of raiN 
roads leading directly to Charleston, Norfolk and Wilmington^ 
bringing these shipping points almost to our door, at through rates, 
and thus opening up the markets of the world to the vast trade 
which centers at this point. The wholesale trade before the war was 
comparatively a small business, but to day it is an immense one, and 
promises to become larger still. 

Prominent among the wholesale interest is the boot and shoe 
business. This market furnishes a very large proportion of the boots 
and shoes which are used in Western North Carolina and upper 
South Carolina. Many of the country merchants in this part of the 
State find it to their advantage to buy these goods here in preference 
to ordering them from the more northern markets. We are able to 
confirm this statement by a recent publication in the American Shoe 
and Leather Reporter, of JBoston, which in a tabular statement showed 
that Charlotte bought many more shoes in Boston than any city in 
]Vorth Carolina, and more than twice as much even as Wilmington, 
and that there were only four other cities in the whole South, whose 
name commences with the letter " C," that bought more boots and 
shoes than Charlotte. 

The most extensive boot and shoe house in Charlotte is that of 
Messrs. Smith & Forbes. This house has been in business for more 
than twenty years, and last year did a busine.ss of at least $144,000, 
which promises the present year to be largely increased. They have 
recently removed into a large, spacious and elegant building on 
Trade street, erected especially for their use, which is not excelled 
in the South. Their stock is large and varied, comprising a full 
assortment of everything in their line. This may be expected as 
they carry a stock valued at from sixty to eighty tiiousnnd dollars. 

Messrs. Sample & Alexander are the only manufacturers of boots 
and shoes in Charlotte, except a number of private shops. These 
gentlemen are now working twenty-nine hands, and are carrying a 



143 

stock of something over forty-five thousand clolh\rs worth, and are 
doing a large wholesale trade. They too, have recently removed 
into a new building, on Trade street, and are occupying two stories 
and the basement of the building for their business. 

Messrs. Wade it Pegram are carrying on the largest strictly retail 
boot and shoe^storein Charlotte. Successors to the well known house 
of 8- B. Meacham, they do a very large and successful business. 

We may truthfully say that tlie boot and shoe business is the 
largest business of any other one line carried on in Charlotte, and it 
is probably worked up harder. Competition is so strong between 
the competing houses that the margin for profit is vf ry clcse, which 
makes it all the better for buvers. 



THE SCHOOLS OF CHARLOTTE. 

No sketch which we could write of Charlotte would be complete 
which would leave out her schools, and although we know that the time 
and space at command will not allow justice to be done to the subject, 
we cannot pass them by unnoticed. In a former part of this sketch we 
have said that Davidson College is the "lineal successor" of Queen's 
College, which was in existence here at the Revolutionary War, but in 
several other schools which are located within the city, that noble insti- 
tution has powerful allies in the cause of education. 

The Carolina Military Institute, which was foimded several years 
previous to the late w-ar, was planned by the immortal Stonewall 
Jacksox, and first presided over by General D. H. Hill, now the editor of 
the Southern Home. It was regularly opened in 1850, Gen. Hill being 
assisted by Gen. .James H. Lane, and Col. Charles C. Lee, both of whom 
subseqently sealed their devotion to their country, by giving up their 
lives in their country's cause. The war found it among the flourishing 
institutions of the land, but it, like nearly every other enterprise, wither- 
ed as if poisoned by a blast from the upas tree, at the touch of the hard 
iron finger of war. 

Every efibrt to resuscitate the school after the war tailed, uiitil the 
Fall of 1873, when Col. John P. Thomas, of South Carolina, conceived 
the idea of establishing a school which would embrace within the scope 
of its aims, the young men of both North and South Carolina, and his 
labors have been crowned w'ith a gratifying success. The curriculum 
embraces a complete graduating course, and at once puts the Institute 
in the front rank among the colleges of the South. It now has about 
one hundred and twenty-five students, and a corps of Professors which 
are an ornament to any institution. 

Charlotte Institute for Young Ladies.— A portion of the 
citizens of Charlotte, anxious to have a female school of high 
character, in 1858 built and equipped this spacious and elegant 
building, which fronts Ninth and College streets, and which 
for beauty in architecture, convenience of arrangement, and adap- 
tation in every respect to the purpo.ses for which it was intended, 
is ecjualled by few institutions of the kind, and probably surpassed 
by none in the Southern country. The Institute was under the 
management of Rev. R. Burwell until the fall of 1873, at which time 
it was taken charge of by Rev. Dr. R. H. Chapman and Mrs. Verina 
S. M. Chapman, as principals, with an able corps of assistants. The 
faculty now consists of Rev. Dr. R. H. Chapman, A. M. D. D., Pro- 
fessor of Ancient Languages, Mental and Moral Philosophy, and 
Mrs. Verina S. M. Chapman, in charge of English, Belles Lettres 
and French, princijjals ; Prof. Stephen Frontis, Mathematics, An- 



144

Science and Mathematics; Prof, aiul Madame DeCastro, Modern 
Languages, Vocal and Instrumental Music. Tlie Boarol of Trustees

Myers, Hon. W. F. Davidson, Dr. M. M. Orr, and Col. John L. .More- 
head. The course of instruction embraces a colleg'iate, as well as a 
preparatory department, and graduates are furnished with diplomas 
of as liigh grade as can be obtained in the Southern States. On the 
rolls are now numbered some ninety students. The present princi- 
pals have labored hard to make the Institution all that a first cla.ss 
school for young ladies ought to be, and deserve the patronage of 
the surrounding country in a much more extensive manner than 
they now receive. Orphans of Confederate soldiers, and the daugh- 
ters of ministers of all denomination,s are at all times invited to 
secure the benefits of the English course in this school freeof cliarge, 
and the full course if the teachers of accomplishments concur in the 
desire of the principals on this subject. Thorough, quiet, steady 
progress, rather than exciting exhibitions, is the law of the school. 
" To be and not to seem " is the chosen motto of the Institute. 

The City Graded School, now a tlourisiiing Institution, with 
three hundred and fifty students, was established under the auspices 
of the Township School Committee in 1878 — Rev. J. B. Boone, Gen. 
Ilufus Barringer and Mr. W. H. H. Houston. Rev. Mr. Boone was 
appointed Superintendent and still holds the position. During the 
last session six hundred dollars was received from the Peabody 
Fund towards the maintenance of the school, and this year one 
thousand has been received from the same source, and not less than 
six hundred dollars have been contributed by private citizens during 
the present scholastic year. Funds have been received from the 
public school fund of the State to an amount of about one tliousand 
dollars per year. Altogether the various sums contributed have 
placed the Institution on a solid and firm foundation. 

This school is yet only a preparatory one, but it is in contempla- 
tion to add a high school department. It is divided at present into 
ten grades under seven teachers. Commencing from a small begins 
ning, it lias progressed until it has become a necessity which is in- 
valuable as a medium of education, particularly among that class 
of our citizens who are mechanics, or are persons with small sala- 
ries, and its beneficial effects have been so salutary that it can hard- 
ly be di.scontinuecl. While it is rather out of the province of this 
sketch , we cannot conclude our remarks in regard to this school 
without an appeal to tlie citizens of Charlotte to provide buildings 
suitable to the necessities of the school. The benefits of this school 
cannot well be overestimated, but it cannot serve the purpose for 
which it is intended, and for wliich its most ardent friends could 
hope, without proper buildings, such as would be an honor to the 
city of Charlotte, and a useful auxiliary in carrying out the purposes 
of education, adequate to the age in which we live. 

Macon School,, in charge of Capt. W. A. Barrier, is the next in 
importance which claims our attention. This school nas been in 
operation^bout two years. Its design is to prepare boys for College, 
for the Freshman and Sophomore classes. There are at present only 
tlurty-five students in attendance, as the membership is select and 
limited. The curiculum embraces a full academic course in the 
ancient languages, and the higher branches of English and mathe- 
matics, including arithmetic, algebra and geometry. Its object fills 
a needed want in the city of Charlotte, and deserves all the patro 
nage which it has received.

The Biddle Memorial Institite is a normal seliool for tlie 
(■(lucatioii of colored perr^ons for the ministry. It is presided over 
l»y Rev. S. Mattoon, D. D., loiij; a missionary in Africa. Ti-ie names 
of the faculty appears elsewiiere in tliis booic. It was originally 
endowed l)y a Miss Biddh', from whom it takes its name, and by 
contriimtions ol private citizens. 

Private Schooi^s. There is probably no city in the. South where 
education is held tt) be of as much importance as in Charlotte. In 
addition to the schools above alluded to is the schools of the Misses 
LonJ,^ Miss Hattie Moore, Mrs. L.D.Scott, Miss M. Nesbit, Miss 
Martha Moore, and Miss ('. R Watt, to which may beadded-the 
colored Peabody sciiools, for the education of colored children, and 
ail of which are in flourishing condition. 

INDUSTRIES. 

Charlotte is a commercial city, but under the head of industries 
there are several estabiisliments which desire especial mention. 

Wilkes' FoiNdry was orioinally the old Confederate Navy 
Yard, where, however paradoxical it may seem, much work was 
done in tittino- out the Confederate Navy, durin«j the late war.— 
Orijiinally deflicated to Afars, Mr. Wilkes bought out the establish- 
ment and veritably moulded the sword and spear into the pruning 
hook and the plow share, emblems of peace and implements of agri- 
culture. He has succeeded in Ituilding up the largest iron foundry 
in North Carolina. Here all classes of the iron foundry business is 
done, Mr. W. employing not less than fifty hands. This establish- 
ment has a rival in the foundry of Mr. W. F. Cook, who does a very 
lart'e and "uccessful business in casting plow-sliares and in making 
and dealing in other agricultural implements. Both are doing a 
good business, and we only wish there were a dozen sucli establish- 
ments, instead of two. 

Under this head may lie very properly introduced the branch 
establishment of the Ti^rie City Iron Works, located on College Street. 
These works at Erie, Pa., have long been noted for the superiority 
of their machinery, and in order to accommodate their tncreasjng 
trade in this section the company have located a branch establish- 
ment here which offers every facility of the present house. 

OTHER MANUFACTORIES. 

The prosjiect for business in Charlotte, after the war, and aftei- 
the completion of the railroads which have been built since that 
time, all centering here, caused a large influx of population. The 
demand for dwelling houses and places of business, made the build- 
ing of a large number of houses a matter of necessity, and to supplj) 
the demand for building material Mr. F. W. Ahrens started a steam 
planing mill, and sash, door and blind factory, which, being incapa- 
ble of supplying the demand, was followed by the establishment of 
the same kind by Jonas Rudisill. These weresubsequently followed 
by the establishment of Mr. Joseph Asbury. All three of which are 
now in a flourishing condition, and so far as we know are meeting 
the demands of the people, employing not less thsn one hundred 
and fifty hands. 

The Dixie Pump Works deserves a passing notice, as Mr. E. M. 
Andrews claims the best pump manufactory in the Southern States. 
His business employs a large force) and his pumps are rapidly suc- 
ceeding all other pumps throughout this section of country.

THE NEWSPAPERS. 



Surrounded as the city of Charlotte always has heeu, by an indus- 
trious, intelligent, hospitable and ])roti,ressive people it is considered 
a tine field for newspapers, and now supports more of them than any 
city of its size in the Southern States. It was our purpose in the coni- 
nn^ncement of this sketch to s^ive a liistory of each newspaper which 
exists now, or has ever existed in Charlotte, but Itoth time and space pre- 
cludes such a pct^sibility now, and we will merely remark en pii>i.-i(Uit, 
that the news})afjers of Charlotte, are all in a thriving condition, and 
give mucja \)njx\me op^uture usefulness. 



THE DRUG BUSINESS. 



./ 



/i^ 



Charlott^ soils the drugs for a large section of tlie cotuifry, and sup- 
ports five Urug stores. The city and surrounding country" is healthy, 
and the climate salubrious, and" it becomes a matter of speculation as to 
what liecomes of all the drugs annually introduced or compounded in 
Charlottd, but the fact is explained when it is recollected that we sujjply 
(princii)ajly) the drugs for not less than twenty-five countii's in North 
- and South .Garolina. 
t 

POPULATION. 

The census of 1870, taken, we are informed, by an individual who 
knew little or nothing about Charlotte or its people, fit iled to mnkc a 
true exhil)it of tlie number of pe^>ple who lived here, and consetiucntly 
the population has been litth^ better than a matter of speculntion. Fn^m 
calculatif)ns made by the pid)lishers of this directory, which may be re- 
lied on, the population of the city is not less than nine thousand. 



• CONCLUSION. 

At the outset, tlu; writer intcn<led tliis sketcli to be nmch more com- 
prehensive than it is, but the time; in which it had to be picpared, to- 
gether with the heavy pressure of other business, has made it necessarily 
incomiilete. The most of the material has been gatliered, and theskctcii 
has been written inside of forty-eight hours, at a time when our whol(> 
time Wiis demanded for our otlier duties. iNIuch of it has been written 
amid the confusicm incident to the editorial rooms of a daily newspaper, 
and in the absen<-e of one of the editors, actually giving the writer 
trel)le duty. Many of the pages have l)een thrown to the ]»rinter before 
the ink was dry, Avitli no opportunity for revision. If it answers the 
]iur])osc forw'hich it was intended, thsit of introducing the stranger to 
our l)eautiful little city, 'we shall be satislied. If it fails to be that 
which our friends would have it thev must take the will for the deed.
