Villa Heights
About 1900 Charlotte real estate developer Clayton O. Brown purchased a tract of land north of the old County Home Road (later renamed Parkwood Avenue) from an A.W. Calvin. This area was marketed as the Villa Heights subdivision. Included were Grace, Union, Barry, and Lola streets, plus the 1800-1900 blocks of Harrill, Allen, Pegram, Umstead, and Parson streets. The earliest trolly line in this working-class district began service shortly before 1910. It ran north past the Louise Mill, then up Pegram Street all the way to Parkwood Avenue. Its terminus at Parkwood Avenue put most of the Villa Heights and Sunnyside subdivisions within an easy walk of the streetcar. It was not surprising that the most working-class of the trio was located in the Belmont-Villa Heights area, Charlotte's largest and most homogeneous concentration of working-class residents. Today this neighborhood is experiencing urban renewal as many properties are being renovated. Preliminary plans for light rail show a station at 27th Street & N Davidson. Eventually a light rail corridor should connect this area to the Uptown, and University area. Recently the NoDa Artists Network Gallery opened at North Davidson and 28th Street.

Location

This neighborhood is adjacent to North Davidson as you head North out of the Uptown. It is bordered to the South and East by Parkwood and The Plaza. On the North boundary you will find Matheson Ave.

Walking Distance to: NoDa @ 28th, Villa Heights Elementary School, Cordelia Park, Little Sugar Creek Greenway

The area also benefits from its close proximity to the Uptown Mass Transit and Cordelia Park.
