Along the shores of Lake Norman in Mecklenburg County, Cornelius, North Carolina is rated as one of the top suburbs in the Charlotte metropolitan area by the real estate website Niche. Once the home of the Catawba people, the land which would become Cornelius saw European settlements spring up in the middle of the 18th century. During the American Revolution, British soldiers under the command of General Cornwallis marched through the area before being confronted by American forces led by William Lee Davidson who was killed in the engagement just south of Cornelius at Cowan’s Ford. Davidson’s namesakes include the town of Davidson north of Cornelius and Davidson College. Originally named Liverpool, Cornelius began as an alternative to Davidson in the cotton milling industry. The town is named after Joseph Benjamin Cornelius who established the first mill in direct competition with mills in Davidson. Early settlers in Cornelius were farmers growing corn and cotton in the thick, rich soil along the Catawba River. In the early 1900’s James Buchanan Duke and executives of Duke Power dreamed of an industrialized south that could compete with northern factories. By 1910 they were buying up farms along the Catawba with the intent of eventually building a dam and flooding the land. In 1963 the dream finally came true with the creation of Lake Norman (named after Duke Power President Norman Atwater Cocke), the largest man-made body of water in North Carolina with more than 500 miles of shore line. Although settlement along the lake was slow, today lake front homes average around one million dollars and iconic basketball star Michael Jordan, co-owner of the Charlotte Hornets, has a Gatsbyesque mansion on the lake. Since 1990 Cornelius has quadrupled in population with mostly affluent residents whose median household incomes exceed $80,000 a year.
A Cornelius tutor can assist you in catching up on your most demanding academic courses so you can escape the books to enjoy the many exciting attractions in the Charlotte metropolitan region. The damming of Lake Catawba by Duke Power not only provided electricity throughout the region but also presented recreational opportunities to residents and visitors alike. Ramsey Creek Park on the shores of Lake Norman is over 40 acres with a beach, boat docks, fishing pier and dog park. Hikers and nature enthusiasts will appreciate the park’s 1.5-mile trail with its scenic views of the lake. The park also has the usual amenities including picnic shelters, volleyball courts and playgrounds.
Just across the lake from Ramsey Creek Park, Jetton Park is over 100 acres with a Waterfront Hall seating 75 people available for weddings, birthdays and other social gatherings. The park has a beach, boat docks, playgrounds, lighted tennis courts and formal garden. Other highlights include hiking and biking trails and a bicycle rental shop.
A little bit south from Cornelius, Historic Rural Hill Farm offers major events throughout the year such as the Scottish Festival & Loch Norman Highland Games and the NC Brewer’s & Music Festival. The Highland Games in April is a family friendly celebration which mimics the age-old Scottish games with traditional Highland dancing, whiskey tasting, bagpipes and feats of strength by burly competitors dressed in kilts. One month later the Brewer’s & Music Festival features craft breweries offering their finest libations along with a variety of musical performers. Both events take place on the 265-acre historic plantation which is open year-round for visitors.
