Waxhaw has two different faces. The Old Face is a rural community with farmland, a tiny historic downtown main street and train tracks, and small neighborhoods. This is the Waxhaw I remember when I moved here 20 years ago to attend Wingate University in Union County.
The New Face of Waxhaw ( WXW ) is full of Northerner Transplants who were moving South, and wanted to be outside of Charlotte-Mecklenburg and were attracted by the lower taxes, larger lots, and new subdivisions. The good thing about new neighborhoods is that everyone else has just moved there, and they are also looking for friendly faces and new friendships. So, if you focus on these neighborhoods you should be well accepted and have a great experience.
I've helped dozens of families move to Waxhaw and welcome your call anytime. I'm available 9am to 9pm most days-- even on weekends. 1-888-628-3965 or 704-858-2345 . http://www.clthome.com
