Before 1963 these small, rural towns just 20 miles north of Charlotte North Carolina were sleepy little towns centered around cotton, agriculture and textiles with the Catawba River nearby. That all changed when Duke Power dammed the Catawba River by building Cowans Ford Dam and created the largest man-made body of fresh water in North Carolina; Lake Norman.
In the mid 1990's the Lake Norman towns began to see rapid growth. Each town has its own personality and has addressed growth in different ways. You'll find eclectic mixes of housing, vibrant retail, office and village centers, industrial parks, an abundance of parks and green space, pedestrian and bicycle friendly streets and still some farming and agricultural areas.
