Charlotte, NC History
In the hopes of currying favor with King George III, the area’s settlers named their town Charlotte, after the king’s wife. Located in the new county of Mecklenburg along the Catawba River in south central North Carolina, Charlotte became known as the “Queen City.” English-Irish immigrants came upon the area while traveling on the Great Wagon Road from Philadelphia. Today, Charlotte is the second largest metropolitan area in the Deep South, to Atlanta, and is the second largest banking center in the country, behind New York City.
