In the early year’s of Charlotte’s history, the geographical area today known as Third Ward was largely farmland until gold was discovered in and around Irwin Creek and its tributaries. The discovery of gold led to a gold rush that was unparalleled in size until the California gold rush of 1849. In what we today call Third Ward, there were once rudimentary sluice miners in Irwin Creek and deep shaft mining operations. The shafts of the long abandoned Rudisill and Saint Catherines mines still snake their way under many of Third Ward’s streets today.
What we know today as Third Ward was originally created as a residential neighborhood in the late 1800’s. In the early days of the neighborhood, this area was considered a streetcar suburb and was known not as Third Ward, but as Woodlawn. Once a predominantly African-American neighborhood, many of the residential structures were demolished in the 1950s and 1960s as a part of urban renewal campaigns aimed to reduce blight in Uptown Charlotte.
Today, Third Ward has evolved into a mixed-use community, featuring Charlotte landmarks like Bank of America stadium, office space housing Fortune 500 companies, and a mixture of single and multi-family housing options.
