The Robinson-Spangler Carolina Room of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library presents these exhibits of the area’s local history and genealogy.


Turn of the 21st Century
Turn of the 21st Century

We are used to seeing photographs of Mecklenburg County from 50 or 100 years ago, knowing that the land has been redeveloped and buildings renovated or replaced. Would we have the same Rip Van Winkle feeling in reverse if we turned the camera back to just the turn of the 21st century? Librarian Jane Johnson has made it possible by taking over 200 photographs of streets, homes, businesses, and public buildings in the year 2000. This exhibit gives viewers a look at what is the same, but mostly what has changed.
