From a College Community to a Trendy Place to Live

Before the 1900s, Elizabeth was a collection of smaller subdivisions on a streetcar line. But as the decades passed, Elizabeth became the center of development as hospitals, businesses, and residents relocated from the heart of Charlotte into this suburb close by. 

Today, Elizabeth is still a popular place to live, and it's just minutes from Uptown Charlotte. The neighborhood feels suburban with its tree-lined streets and single-family homes, yet it has all of the conveniences of a neighborhood nestled in a thriving city.

How Elizabeth Got Its Name

spines on old books

Charlotte's Elizabeth neighborhood is full of history, just like its name. According to the Elizabeth Community Association, the neighborhood takes its name from Elizabeth College, which was named in honor of the first president's mother-in-law Anne Elizabeth Watts.   

A Tightly Knit Community

Elizabeth preserves its old-fashioned sense of community through a variety of neighborhood events and volunteering opportunities, from progressive dinners to a Home & Garden Tour to an 8K road race. These events are just a few more reasons to love Elizabeth.
