Lenn:  Well, what do you know?!  Google found little old me!!  LOL  Thank you!  Localism posts are some of my favorites to write and photograph. I love to read about history and think that many would like to know a little before deciding on a particular area of the city.  Thanks again!

Hi Debe -- I love reading these types of posts.  While I have never been to Charlotte, everyone I have ever spoken to who knows it or has lived there raves about it.

HEllo Debe.

  It sure looks like a very nice area to live in.  Maybe someday when I'm ready to retire, I'll look into it.

Of course I'll give you a call if I do.
