Take a walk through this intimate and charming neighborhood. In 1970, Charlotte's Fourth Ward was a desolate zone of vacant lots dotted with boarded-up and burned-out buildings. Today, the neighborhood is a leafy mix of Victorian homes, modern in-fill houses and stately apartment buildings. The remarkable story of that transformation began with an unlikely coalition of preservationists, bankers and young families seeking community. Author Cameron Holtz interviewed dozens of these early actors, including corporate leaders, people who got their start as volunteers and kids who grew up playing in the construction equipment. Personal recollections, along with archival sources and contemporary media clippings combine to create a vibrant portrait of the emerging neighborhood.
