Welcome to Myers Park
Myers Park is an exquisite neighborhood with an elite Charlotte zip code. Century-old oak trees line streets featuring sprawling historic estates. Myers Park was first developed at the turn of the 20th century, transforming an area of farmland into Charlotte’s first suburb. Much of Myers Park’s real estate consists of grand Colonial and Tudor Revival mansions built in the 1920s. The neighborhood also contains attractive American Craftsman properties and landmark residences, such as architect Charles Christian Cook’s 1914 James Buchanan Duke House and Louis H. Asbury’s 1917 H.M. McAden House. 670 of the neighborhood’s homes and other buildings are registered as part of the Myers Park Historic District.
