He & Earle Sumner Draper used the winding paths following the natural landscape to create what now carries Charlotte’s timeless allure. The historic neighborhood is best known for its canopy of more than 100-year-old oak trees. Most of the historic homes in Myers Park, showcase masterful 1920s Colonial Revival, and Tudor Revival. The address allows for strolls to Freedom Park & convenient access to uptown. Students from Queens University of Charlotte, tote books along Selwyn Avenue, bike riders roll down Queens Road’s landscaped loops, and families, young and old, flock to the neighborhood’s delis, specialty shops, galleries and restaurants.
