Just 15 miles north of Charlotte is the expanding community of Huntersville. The town is considered the first Lake Norman town north of Charlotte and was officially incorporated in 1873. It was named in honor of major landowner and cotton farmer Robert Boston Hunter. The area was known for its farming, fertile land and rail line which quickly grew the community.

This lakefront community has a population of nearly 50,000 people and continues to expand as more and more families move to the town, motived by the area’s enticing attributes. The allure of the remaining farmland, the simple commute into the city of Charlotte and its easy lake access make this neighborhood a great place to call home. Huntersville provides access to Lake Norman and its 520 miles of shoreline.  Residents can find access to the lake by visiting Blythe Landing Park, just off NC Highway 73 for launching boats and other recreational activities.  There is also local access to Mountain Island Lake.
