Myers Park Development

Object Year: 
W.H. (Bill) Sumner

Wagons hauling materials to the Myers Park construction site. Myers Park is one of Charlotte's oldest neighborhoods. George Stephens played an instrumental role in the development of Myers Park in the early part of the twentieth century. The land was owned by Stephens's father-in-law, J.S. Myers. Originally a suburb of Charlotte, the area quickly became the site of beautiful examples of American architecture. Landscape architect John Nolen and his assistant Earle Draper designed the curving, tree-lined streets. This collection shows the area under construction, as well as the planting of full grown trees.
