Welcome to Hunter Oaks.
The Hunter Oaks neighborhood was first developed in the mid-1990s, right around the time that the nearby Village of Marvin was incorporated. However, the history of this land goes back much further, to colonial days when nearby Waxhaw was first settled before the Revolutionary War. This area remained largely agricultural for many years until the railroad came through in the late 1800s, prompting a rise in industry with the advent of numerous textile factories to process the cotton grown on nearby farms. While today the Marvin-Waxhaw area is considered part of the Charlotte suburbs, this area continues to preserve its serene rural charm of yesteryear, with historic downtown Waxhaw being listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
