Matthews Station

In 1874, the Carolina Central Railway Company built a railroad through the town as part of the line from Wilmington, North Carolina to Tennessee.

The first train rolled into the community on December 15, 1874 and people from miles around came to see the "Iron Horse." The name of the town was changed to Matthews in honor of Edward Watson Matthews, a director of the railroad.

Today, the train station is the office of the Matthews Chamber of Commerce. Everyone is welcome to stop in and learn about Matthews' history and the events happening in town.
