Charlotte-Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission

Stafford-Holcombe Farm One Step Closer to Landmark Status

August 25, 2021

Charlotte City Council will hold a public hearing on Sept. 27 for the designation of the Stafford-Holcombe Farm, located in eastern Mecklenburg County near the Cabarrus County border. The main house, constructed in the early 19th-century, still stands as do a variety of other buildings, including an early 19th-century log slave quarter-tenant house.

We believe that our designated landmarks should tell the broad story of Mecklenburg County and we hope you take some time to delve into the history of this property or any of our other prospective or designated properties.
