Selling Your Home in 4th Ward in Uptown?
The Fourth Ward is a residential neighborhood in Charlotte that perfectly blends restored historic homes with newer construction. It is located in the northwest quadrant of Charlotte’s Uptown area.
The community is known for its bright, airy, narrow tree-lined streets and picturesque Victorian homes with gorgeous front porches and courtyard gardens.
During the early months of 1887, the trolley came into use in Charlotte. It brought communities that once seemed far away within easy reach. As a result, Fourth Ward became a sought-after area. The community was recognized as an affluent area of Charlotte and was inhabited by business owners, clergy, and doctors. It was also home to numerous churches, making it the center of influence for religious matters.
However, as the trolley lines extended, people began moving out to the suburbs and Fourth Ward suffered from a loss of population. The area was left in a state of neglect. It was common to see vandalized or even burned-out houses. Many of the beautiful Victorian homes were either destroyed or became commercial buildings.
Thankfully, Fourth Ward saw a restoration during the 1970’s, when the Junior League partnered with Bank of America to begin revitalizing the neighborhood home by home. Today, it has become a thriving part of Uptown Charlotte.
Absolute gem to work with. Miss Burney is very professional and informative. She not only met our expectations but far exceeded them. This is third house we've purchased and she is hands down the best agent we've had the pleasure of dealing with. Trust me, you can't go wrong with Miss Burney.

More about the 4th Ward in Uptown ~ Charlotte NC
Fourth Ward is an official Historic District and is the location of Old Settlers’ Cemetery, as well as the three-acre Fourth Ward Park, which offers a lovely retreat from the busy offices and roadways of the other wards. Old Settlers’ Cemetery is Charlotte’s oldest burial site. It is located at the corner of W. 5th Street and N. Church Street in Fourth Ward. The site is actually the final resting place for a number of Revolutionary War veterans, Confederate veterans, and other prominent founders of Charlotte and Mecklenburg.
Today, with its old, majestic oaks and brick lined pathways, the cemetery also doubles as a small park. It’s common to see residents walking their dogs, joggers running on the paths, and office workers cutting through on the way to work. It is a centerpiece of Charlotte’s Fourth Ward Historic District.
Fourth Ward has repeatedly been voted as one of the best “walking” areas in Charlotte. A stroll around the community provides visitors with a look at some of the charming historic buildings and homes in the city. There’s the North Carolina Medical College Building which was constructed in 1907 of red brick stamped metal trim and. It was used as a hotel after the college closed.

Other historic buildings include the 1931 Frederick Apartments, known for its elaborate use of terracotta; the Bagley-Mullen House, the best example of Queen Anne-style architecture in the city; and the First Presbyterian Church, the religious centerpiece of the city, built in Gothic Revival style in the mid 1800s.
