The gift to Mint Hill that keeps giving: How the town got the land for its current town hall

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.
