Eastover, located southeast ofÂ Uptown Charlotte, formerly two dairy farms, (also formerly known as Myers Park Eastover), was developed byÂ E. C. Griffith in 1927.Â Â From the days ofÂ Earle Sumner Draper, to present day,Â Eastover Charlotte NCÂ has been the home of some ofÂ Charlotteâ€™s most elite.Â From cotton brokers to bankers to attorneys, the major facilitators of Charlotteâ€™s growth have resided in Eastover.Â E.C. Griffith sought to createÂ EastoverÂ as a competitor toÂ Myers Park.
CharlotteÂ was once headquarters to 770 textile mills, consuming more cotton than any other sector of the world.Â In 1927, the piedmont North and South Carolina, officially surpassed New England in cotton cloth production.ÂCharlotteans not only owned numerous mills and brokered much of their own cotton for the entire region but, also boasted a large number of bankers, attorneys, stockbrokers, and leading retailers.Â Â Griffith saw this elite, upper-income group as a potential market for a new suburb branching off ofÂ Myers Park,Â which was not completely developed at that time.Â E.C. Griffith made a name for himself as a successful local real estate developer and the company remains one of the oldest in the city, now dealing primarily in commercial real estate.
Nearly 600 homes make up theÂ EastoverÂ neighborhoodÂ which is full of towering hardwoods, winding streets and amazing architecture.Â Eastover Elementary SchoolÂ is at the â€˜heartâ€™ of Eastover.Â Small businesses outline the neighborhood on the east and winding sidewalks provide easy access for the residents.
EarlyÂ EastoverÂ architecture is primarily Georgian, mixed with Tudor, bungalow and Colonial.Â Â One home, the Reynolds-Gourmajenko House of Tuscan Revival architecture exists on Providence Road; no home like it exists in Charlotte or Mecklenburg County.Â As the commute to the city became a bit longer for suburbians, vacant lots quickly filled with new construction, mostly in-keeping with the Georgian theme.Â Currently older estates are being renovated and are truly amazing.
TheÂ Mint Museum of Art,Â the first branch of the US Mint, was transported toÂ EastoverÂ in pieces from its original location in Uptown to a site donated by E.C. Griffith Company.Â Â Martin Boyer, who orchestrated the move, marked each and every stone before its move. The Civil Works Administration, one ofÂ Franklin Rooseveltâ€™sÂ New Deal Agencies, provided the labor to resurrect the building as the Mint Museum of Art in 1936.Â Â This was one of Charlotteâ€™s first historic preservation operations.
Since the late 1800â€™s, wealthy Charlotteans have enjoyed living on the fringe of the Uptown (formerly Downtown) area andÂ EastoverÂ was one of the cityâ€™s first suburbs.Â Sometimes called â€˜country homes,â€™ the Georgian homes inÂ Eastover,Â Dilworth,Â ElizabethÂ andÂ Myers ParkÂ were a mere 5Â¢ fare toÂ UptownÂ on the electric streetcar (1890â€™s).Â Â The more impressive suburbs tended to be south or east of town, in essence, due to the fact that the cityâ€™s only railroad bridges at the time, were on East Trade and East Morehead Streets. Â Dozens of trains blocked the tracks on a daily basis creating a blockade surrounding the business district.
