Charlotte is a major city and commercial hub in North Carolina. Its modern city center (Uptown) has tall buildings with eye-pleasing architecture.
King George III still ruled the Colonies when European settlers chartered the town back in 1768. They named the new hamlet after the King’s wife, Queen Charlotte.
We will be posting images of Charlotte over the next several weeks. Here is a sign depicting Charlotte in the center of the region.
