Welcome to Myers Park
It’s hard to decide what’s more impressive in this residential gem: its more than 100-year-old tree canopy or its mansion-lined streets.
Revered for the rows of stunning dwellings that showcase masterful 1920s Colonial Revival and Tudor Revival craftsmanship, the Myers Park ZIP code carries timeless allure. The historic hood is best known for its canopy of more than 100-year-old oak trees, perfect complements to the mansions and magnificent gardens on the main drag, Queens Road West. Each of these details was part of John Springs Myers’ plan to convert cotton farmland into Charlotte’s first suburb back in the early 1900s. Noted architect George Stephens and designers John Nolen and Earle Sumner Draper helped translate Myers’ vision into what became the coveted residential area. Students from Queens University of Charlotte tote books along Selwyn Avenue, bike riders roll down Queens Road’s landscaped loops, and families young and old flock to the neighborhood’s delis, specialty shops, galleries and restaurants.
