Matthews, formerly Fullwood, was renamed such in 1874 to honor an official of the Central Carolina Railroad. Still today, the railway goes through Matthews, where the historic downtown--complete with old-time hardware store--retains a cozy, small town feel. Outside the downtown area, however, residential growth has increased to the point where the post office had to be expanded, and the high-rise Presbyterian Hospital-Matthews was constructed. Close to Highway 74, Matthews residents find everything they could possibly want in strip malls, spacious shopping centers and dining. A Matthews interchange of the Interstate 485 "outer loop" hints that they'll see a stream of new neighbors for years to come. Plans for light rail or an express bus route into Center City Charlotte are on the drawing board.

Matthew sits adjacent to SE Charlotte. In recent years the city of Charlotte has begun to wrap around this community. It is easily accessible from I-485 and Independence Blvd.
