Charlotte Visionaries

Great cities come about through the vision of great leaders. Charlotte is no exception. Throughout time, Charlotte has been blessed with its own visionaries.

Early founders like Alexander, Polk and Davidson were followed by manufacturers like Tompkins, Cramer, Carson and Lance and retailers like Belk, Cato and Levine. Without these great minds, Charlotte would not be the city it is today.
