The Elizabeth community is a very unique neighborhood. It is the only neighborhood in Charlotte that is named for a woman.
She was Anne Elizabeth Watts, whose husband, Gerald Snowden Watts, was in the tobacco business in Durham. Her son-in-law, Charles B. King, selected Charlotte as the location for a small Lutheran college for women that opened in 1897. Because Mr. Watts provided the money to start the college, President King named Elizabeth College in honor of his mother-in-law.
The Elizabeth community became part of Charlotte in 1907. It has dramatically transformed over the years. Being near several major hospitals, Elizabeth has prospered into a beautiful community lined with quaint bungalows. Residents love residing in a walkable community. As Charlotte grows, the Elizabeth community continues to experience residential and commercial growth due to its proximity to Uptown Charlotte.
