Hezekiah Alexander Home Site

The Hezekiah Alexander Home Site is a culturally significant and powerful setting for educational programs and brings to life important themes in our national history. Here students, residents, and visitors can explore the three cultures that settled the Carolina Backcountry: the Catawba Indian Tribe, European Immigrants, and African Americans, as well as the ideas and events that led to the American Revolution and the influential Southern Campaign of the Revolutionary War.
Hezekiah Alexander played a leadership role in Charlotte and Mecklenburg County during the years North Carolina was a British colony. He was elected by his peers to lead during the critical years of 1774 to 1776 when Committees of Safety served as the de facto government following the end of royal government. He was then elected to serve as a member of the North Carolina Fifth Provincial Congress that wrote North Carolina’s first constitution and bill of rights.  Hezekiah Alexander is remembered as a signer of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence and the Mecklenburg Resolves.
The Home Site includes the original Alexander house, ca. 1774, a renovated log kitchen, and a reconstructed springhouse.
