Brawley to be sworn in next week in Matthews

Bill Brawley, the newly elected N.C. Representative for District 103 (which includes Mint Hill) will take the oath of office January 5th in Matthews. The event will be held at 7 pm at the Matthews Town Hall in the Commissioners Meeting Room and is open to the public.

Brawley takes the place of Jim Gulley who served more than a decade as the state representative for this area. Gulley chose not to seek another term because of health reasons.


Historical Society purchases land for future growth

The Mint Hill Times

Mint Hill Historical Society leaders Judy McWhirter, Becky Griffin, Stan Davis and Bob Rowland commemorate the purchase of new land for the society.

If you recall over the summer the Mint Hill Board of Commissioners approved a unique deal that allowed Evans Construction a Special Use Permit for minor changes to its development behind Mint Hill Village in exchange for two plots of land that the Mint Hill Historical Society could obtain for its facilities on Matthews-Mint Hill Road.
It is now official, as the Historical Society announced yesterday that it is “the proud owner of an additional 3/4 of an acre of land.”
The historical society will make improvements to the already impressive Carl J. McEwen Historic Village.
