Eastover Charlotte NC--A Little Lesson in History


Eastover, located just southeast of Charlotte’s Center City, formerly two dairy farms, (also formerly Myers Park Eastover), was developed by E. C. Griffith in 1927.   In the Eastover Charlotte NC community, history abounds!

Let's talk Mint history in Eastover


Mint MuseumThe Mint Museum of Art, the first branch of the US Mint, was transported to Eastover in pieces from its original location in Uptown to a site donated by E.C. Griffith Company.  Martin Boyer, who orchestrated the move, marked each and every stone before its move.


Mint Museum










The Civil Works Administration, one of Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal Agencies, provided the labor to resurrect the building as the Mint Museum of Art in 1936.   This was one of Charlotte's first historic preservation operations. 


Since the late 1800’s, prosperous Charlotteans have enjoyed living on the fringes of Uptown.  Sometimes called ‘country homes,’ the Georgian homes in Eastover, Dilworth, Elizabeth and Myers Park were a mere 5¢ fare to Uptown Charlotte NC on the electric streetcar (1890’s).  



Eastover Charlotte, not only rich in history, is considered one of the city's most sought-after neighborhoods
