Charlotte Museum of History

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Step back into time and see just how the very first residents of Charlotte arrived in a covered wagon. See the oldest structure still standing in Charlotte.

The Charlotte Museum of History hosts all these things as well as a look back into the eras that define the Queen City.

Hezekiah Alexander built a home back in the late 1700's and it still stands today. Inside the museum are several exhibits that recreate what early life was like for settlers.

A diorama depicts Trade and Tryon streets before the big banks moved in, before anything moved in really, except for farmland and a few modest homes.

The museum offers group discounts and daily tours. Hours are Sunday, 1-5 P.M., Monday closed and Tuesday-Saturday 10 A.M. - 5 P.M.
