Beautiful Bradford pear trees line the entrance of this small established community with just under 300 homes. It is the type of place where you expect to see people out walking their dogs, kids playing in the yards, and regular block parties taking place on a Friday night. Welcome to Providence Crossing.
Located in South Charlotte, about a mile south of the intersection of Providence Road and Interstate 485, Providence Crossing is one of the city’s most desirable places to live. The elegant homes, built throughout the 1990s, are well-maintained and sit on larger lots than those in other nearby neighborhoods. Sidewalks line the quiet, low-traffic streets, providing residents with a safe place to go for an evening walk on a gorgeous Carolina day.
The community backs up to Providence Country Club, and residents have the opportunity to join and take advantage of its many amenities. They include a golf course, tennis courts, a fitness center, and three swimming pools. Speaking of amenities, you will find plenty in the surrounding area, especially if you enjoy shopping and dining. And with Uptown Charlotte just 15 miles away, work opportunities are plentiful.
Providence Crossing is the perfect place for busy professionals, families, and retirees who want to remain close to the heart of Charlotte but want a quiet place to call home at the end of the day.
The land where Charlotte sits today was once the crossroads of two Native American trading paths. That location is now the intersection of Trade and Tryon. The city was founded in 1768 and named for Queen Charlotte of England. A few decades later, a young boy accidentally discovered a 17-pound gold nugget, and so the first gold rush in the nation’s history began. The gold rush was short-lived, and those who did not move on to California stuck around and began farming crops like cotton and tobacco.
After the Civil War, the railroads began to roll through town, and cotton mills were on the rise. Charlotte eventually became one of the top producers of textiles in the country during the late 1800s. That industry eventually slowed, but during the 1970s and 1980s, banking and financing took over. People began flocking to Charlotte to take advantage of new job opportunities, and the fastest-growing city in the United States became one of the nation’s top banking hubs.
