Just twelve miles from Charlotte, Matthews, North Carolina is considered one of the top ten suburbs in the metropolitan region. Originally the home of the Catawba and Waxhaw Native Americans, the land which would become Matthews wouldn’t see significant European settlement until the late 18th century when German, Scottish and Irish immigrants began clearing the heavily wooded area for their small farms. Because so many trees had been cut down in the area it briefly became known as Stumptown. Soon enough farmers discovered the land was perfect for growing cotton and it became the area’s primary crop. For much of the 19th century the town was known as Fullwood, after the first postmaster. In 1874, however, the railroad connected the town to other North Carolina areas and the name was changed to Matthews, in honor of Edward Watson Matthews, an executive in the Central Carolina Railroad. By the late 1800’s Matthews was a growing community with cotton gins, general stores, a bank, drug store and hotel. In fact, the tin ceiling and brick walls of the Funderburk General Merchandise Store are still being used. Fortunately, Matthews has retained several of its historic buildings. The Providence Presbyterian Church is one of the oldest chapels in North Carolina and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Like much of the Charlotte area, Matthews has seen extreme growth in recent years with the population more than doubling since 1990. The real estate website Niche gives Matthews an overall grade of A+ and ranks it as the seventh best suburb in the Charlotte area. Median household income exceeds $70,000 a year and more than fifty percent of Matthews’ adults have attained a Bachelor’s Degree or better.

The Four Mile Creek Greenway traverses the southern part of Matthews before it reaches picturesque Squirrel Lake Park.

The park also features a 12-hole disc golf course and bicycle repair shop.
Located in the 1880’s Victorian style Massey-Clark House, the Matthews Heritage Museum houses artifacts, photographs and documents dating back to the earliest history of the town. The Lifestyles Gallery takes visitors back to the 19th century with exhibits highlighting a one room school, early kitchens and vintage furniture. The Community Gallery focuses on activities at the local drug store and a doctor’s office. The gallery also displays the pottery of Matthews native R.F. Outen, one of the foremost folk pottery producers in the nation.
It’s just a short drive along East Independence Boulevard into Charlotte to visit the NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing) Hall of Fame which honors the best in stock car racing over the last one hundred years. Highlights of the hall include the “Glory Road” exhibit featuring historic race cars, tracks and iconic drivers. The 278-seat High Octane Theater shows visitors an entertaining documentary on the history of NASCAR from the first races at Daytona to the present day. Opened in 2010, the hall includes 45 official inductees, mostly drivers with the late Dale Earnhardt part of the initial inaugural class.
