Black History in the Queen City
The south is rich in African-american history and there is no better time to experience this vibrant culture than during Black History Month. The Queen City celebrates throughout the month of February with a variety of cultural events to salute the proud, southern Americans in Charlotte and the important role they have played in the social, political and economic life of our great city.
Built during the late 1890's, the shotgun houses were originally located in the former Third Ward neighborhood called "Blandville" and are now housed at 153 and 155 West Bland Street and 810 East Ninth Street in Charlotte
