Charlotte Museum of History & Hezekiah Alexander Homesite
"The Charlotte Museum of History is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization that interprets and preserves Charlotte’s unique history, enriching the community through shared understanding of the past and inspiring dialogue about the future.
The Museum is the steward of the ca. 1774 Hezekiah Alexander Home Site, a National Register of Historic Places site, and places an emphasis on the settlement of the Carolina Backcountry and the ideas and events that led to the American Revolution. The Alexander House is the last extant home of a framer of North Carolina’s 1776 Constitution and Bill of Rights and the oldest surviving house in Mecklenburg County. In addition to the house, the Alexander home site contains a reproduction log kitchen, reconstructed two-story springhouse and log barn.
The Museum includes a two-story, self-guided building, open Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, as well as the Hezekiah Alexander Homesite. Guided tours of the Homsesite are offered on the hour, starting at 12:00 pm. The last tour of the day leaves at 4:00 pm. Tours by appointment for groups are also available. Please call the Museum to learn more."
