History of Charlotte

First founded in 1755 as Charlottetown, Charlotte later became a city due to the foresight of surveyors. In 1770, they decided to mark the streets in a grid pattern for future development. This grid pattern allowed the town to grow at a marked pace, eventually becoming the largest city in North Carolina with over two million citizens in the Charlotte NC metro area. Baseball has been played at a very high level in Charlotte since 1892 when the Charlotte Hornets debuted in a competition known as the South Atlantic League. Despite being a warm-weather Southern city, Charlotte has a long ice hockey history that dates back to 1956.
