Lawson, a Charlotte neighborhood where history is preserved.
Lawson doesn’t have historical houses. It’s the land itself where Lawson lies among 500 acres of rolling woodlands that has a history. In 1701, an English naturalist named John Lawson followed an ancient trail of the Waxhaw Indians to discover the area. In the mid-1700s, a thriving settlement was located here where five roads met at Five Forks. The land was also the site of a 19th century mill called Howard’s Mill.
These historical sites are preserved in Lawson’s common areas, which encompass nearly a third of this master-planned community. Miles of walking and hiking trails weave through the common areas for residents to enjoy. The working water wheel and building of the community clubhouse evoke Howard’s Mill.
Lawson residents can enjoy its history and natural sites while living in newer homes. Started in 2005, Lawson has several villages completed and a new builder has announced plans for three new villages in 2012. The neighborhood has a great location off Cuthbertson Road in the small Union County NC town of Waxhaw NC. Waxhaw is a twenty minute drive from Charlotte’s southern edge.
