March 11, 1982 was a milestone for Mint Hill. Yes, it was 11 years to the day that Mint Hill was incorporated. But it was also the day that John McEwen and wife Scottie donated 5.5 acres to the town for its first town hall. Previously, the board had met in a barber shop, doctor’s office, and fire department.

In this week’s Mint Hill Times, read about the donation of the land. In next week’s issue, we look at why the town hall looks so modern, and why it was one of the first eco-friendly buildings in the area. To see the agenda from that 1982 board meeting, click after the break. Thanks to Town Clerk Beth Hamrick for digging this up for us.
