At the turn of the century, Charlotte’s first suburbs were served by streetcar lines along the neighborhoods of Dilworth, Elizabeth, Myers Park in South Charlotte, and Plaza-Midwood in East Charlotte.
Eastover was the first neighborhood especially designed with driveways for well-heeled residents’ “motorcars”. “Two times four plus a door” refers to the traditional colonial architectural design that is the most popular style in Charlotte – four windows symmetrically placed on either side of a grand entranceway. Alongside stately colonials, you’ll also see elegant Victorians and cozy craftsman style bungalows.
