Mint Hill , North Carolina
Mint Hill is a community with big-city amenities and opportunities located on the doorstep of the great metropolis of Charlotte, while offering small town charm. The Mint Hill Chamber of Commerce and the Mint Hill Historical Society welcome you to this 2018-19 Community Guide. The following pages provide details of what Mint Hill has to offer new residents, visitors and businesses. We invite you to have a look, and then come to Mint Hill and see for yourself. What kind of community is Mint Hill? If you ask the 26,000+ residents you’ll get different answers like, “a great to raise a family’, or “a prosperous place to own a business’. But one answer all of them will agree on is that Mint Hill is “home”. Mint Hill is the kind of place where people know their neighbors and will pause at the farmers market or in front of a restaurant to discuss things like the score of last night’s game or what’s being planned for the weekend. In that respect, it has a “small town America” feel. But on the other hand, Mint Hill offers resources, amenities and a diverse business community that much larger communities would envy. For example, Mint Hill is blessed with a thriving economy, continued development, numerous dining options, great shopping, and positive energy. The towns leadership, facilities, recreational activities, and places of worship are some of the key components that make Mint Hill an excellent community to conduct business, live and enjoy life.

ON THE HORIZON What’s coming up in Mint Hill By Penelope D. McClenny
When Mint Hill leaders considered plans for expanding the town’s parks and recreation facilities, they knew additional sports fields and a baseball stadium could be a homerun. “Mint Hill is kind of a baseball town,” Town Manager Brian Welch said. “This is an opportunity to build something that our kids can play on and get big-eyed, if you will.” During a July meeting, the Board of Commissioners approved a bond referendum that will fund two proposed projects: an athletic park including four multi-use rectangu-
On Tuesday November 6, 2018, Mint Hill residents will be presented with two separate bond questions on their ballot: a parks and recreation bond and a public facility bond. Each bond will pass or fail independently, where a vote of "yes" will indicate support of the specific bond, while a vote of "no" will indicate a disapproval of the specific bond.
lar fields on Brief Road and a 2,500-seat baseball stadium at Veterans Memorial park near N.C. 218 and I-485. Residents will also be able to vote separately on a $3 million public facility bond to help restore and convert Bain Academy into a cultural arts center. Although these ventures could be funded without referendum approval, Welch said Commissioners wanted to be sure the projects moved forward with public support. Public interest appears strong, Welch said, especially considering past requests from local civic and athletic groups. “I know that the (American) Legion guys have been on the Mint Hill folks forever,” Welch said, referring to a local competitive baseball league whose games can draw a crowd. “There hasn’t been a facility that’s up to par for that type of activity. This has an opportunity to be our thing.” That opportunity will include many events beyond baseball. The facility will be designed for flexible use, including concerts, food festivals and many other types of family entertainment. “We are in sore need of these facilities that have been planned for these projects,” Welch said. “It’s almost like

roads, you can’t build them fast enough.” The same can also be said for public walkways and traffic flow projects. A new roundabout at Bain School Road and Lawyers Road will help alleviate some of those issues, Welch said, and new pedestrian paths are planned throughout town. “We always try to have a shovel in the dirt toward some sidewalk project,” he said. While plans for the stadium, recreation fields and cultural center continue to develop, another large-scale local project recently hosted its ribbon-cutting.

PUBLIC FACILITY BOND On Tuesday November 6, 2018, Mint Hill residents will be presented with two separate bond questions on their ballot: a parks and recreation bond and a public facility bond. Each bond will pass or fail independently, where aÂ vote of "yes" will indicate support of the specific bond, while a vote of "no" will indicate a disapproval of the specific bond.
A $3,000,000 public facility bond is proposed to cover the costs of restoring and converting the historic Bain Academy building into a public cultural arts center.
This project is proposed to include the preservation, remediation, and reconfiguration of the existing structure located at the intersection of Bain School Road and Philadelphia Church Road (in front of Bain Elementary School). The vision for the project includes restoration of the building and its auditorium to be used as a public cultural arts center for dance, music, other performances, civic meetings, and community gatherings.
The existing facility is currently owned by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) who has preserved the unused approximately 7,500 sq. ft. building for a future use, if desired by the Town. The restored and repurposed facility would be owned and operated by the Town of Mint Hill. If the public facility bond referendum passes, an architect will be selected based on qualifications to develop conceptual plans and eventually construction documents for the building. Public input will be incorporated into the planning of the facility by several means including stakeholder groups, public meetings, and other methods that encourage residents to provide input that will be used to guide the design team.
PARKS AND RECREATION BOND A $15,000,000 parks and recreation bond is proposed to cover the construction of two public park facilities: an athletic park on Brief Road and a baseball stadium at Veterans Memorial Park near NC218 and I-485.
Stadium at Veterans Memorial Park The proposed Stadium at Veterans Memorial Park was originally included in the Athletic Park on Brief Road's design and was designated exclusively as a baseball stadium. In order to fit more rectangular multi-use fields at the Park, the decision was made to relocate the Stadium to unused property at Veterans Memorial Park. This has the added benefit of allowing additional parking and better access to events at the Stadium. (See proposed site plan on pages 20 & 21)
Mint Hill , North Carolina
Athletic Park on Brief Road The proposed Athletic Park on Brief Road began planning and design in 2015 at the direction of the Board of Commissioners to address the growing need for athletic facilities in Mint Hill. The Park is proposed at the Town's existing 28-acre parcel located at 9801 Brief Road (across the street from the privately-operated Mint Hill Athletic Association). Several multi-use rectangular athletic fields will be featured with supporting amenities such as a playground, walking/jogging path, parking, and restrooms.

PROJECT SUMMARY The proposed Athletic Park on Brief Road will be a multi-use active recreation facility.

circa 1890 Built around 1890 for Dr. John McCamie DeArmon, the building was also used by Dr. Ayer Manny Whitley from 1908 until 1951. In addition to seeing patients in the office, both doctors made house calls, first on horseback and later by automobile.
circa 1900 Ira V. Ferguson, the father of seven, built this country store in the early 20th century and ran it for a decade before dying of pneumonia at age 38. He kept milk, butter, eggs, cheese, fruit, vegetables, tobacco and sodas in the cold storage cellar, cooled by a big block of ice. Sometimes he treated his children to NuGrape soda, passed from one to the other while sitting in a circle.

It’s time to take another ‘step into history’ and preserve the almost bygone era of farming in the Mint Hill area. It’s time to raise a barn! The barn will not only be a place to teach and remind visitors of the important role farm-ing had in the area, but also a place for families to gather and celebrate special occasions, and even a place for a good ol’ fashioned hoe down! We’re asking you to be a friend of the village and contribute to the Barn Raising! Your donation of any amount will make a difference in preserving the rich history of our community.
FARMERS MARKET Home-grown and home-made can be found at the market, local vendors, crafters, bakers and farmers sell their goods each Saturday from May through October.

By Penelope D. McClenny
ore than 25 years ago, with new development threatening an old doctor’s office, several Mint Hill residents began working to preserve the town’s rich history. A charter signed in April 1985 created the Mint Hill Historical Society, and the country doctor’s building found a new home as the first structure at the Carl J.
Mint Hill , North Carolina
McEwen Historic Village. Nearly three decades later, the society is in the midst of an old-fashioned barn-raising to erect the village’s largest structure yet. “Our goal is to tell the agricultural history of Mint Hill and the surrounding areas,” said Becky Griffin, Executive Director of the society. Adding a barn will not only help accommodate visiting students, but also provide more space for families celebrating reunions and baby showers as well as help house the society’s extensive collection of historical artifacts. “I can’t tell you how much farm equipment, mule-driven farm equipment, that has been donated to us, and we’re just so anxious to have a place to display it,” Griffin said. To find the village’s newest old struc-
ture, Griffin and other members of the society traveled to Ohio. A Board Member had gotten a lead on a barn that fit the society’s time period, which includes buildings from the late 1800s. "We went ahead and purchased the frame,” Griffin said, adding that most of the barn will be outfitted with locally sourced historical wood. “We will use reclaimed boards and logs from local houses and barns from that era.” This project is only the latest example of an ambitious idea that society members worked to bring to fruition, said Sue McDonald, Village Administrative Director for the past 16 years. The bustling venue charges a nominal admission, so members are constantly searching for fundraising opportunities to bankroll new projects and meet expensive day-to-
day operating costs. Just a few years ago, Griffin began a casual conversation with a rodeo enthusiast at a local party. Soon, she proposed the idea of a Mint Hill-area event with McDonald and members of the board. “I think we all looked at her like she had two heads,” McDonald said, laughing. Unsure of the support such an event would draw in the area, they began planning for an April 2017 show with help from the South Carolina High School Rodeo Association. “We were really nervous getting it together that first year,” McDonald said. “We were standing up by the concession stand and we could see the cars coming in and I said, ‘I feel like we are in the field of dreams.’” When nearly 3,000 people attended the first night, rodeo instantly became a part of preserving history. Inspired by that event, with plans for a third rodeo in the spring of 2019, Griffin said she is once again expanding her fundraising horizons to include a tractor pull. “What we’ll do to preserve history,” she said, laughing. Those unique events not only help bring exposure to the village, but also support programs that give young students and other visitors to Carl J. McEwen an educational and surprising glimpse into the past. “They also have to wash socks on a washboard in the yard, and they have to pump water from a well, and that is a fascinating thing for the kids,” Griffin said. Visitors can also try their hand at gold panning and searching for eggs laid by the village’s chickens. “It’s just a laid-back fun place to visit,” she continued. “Kids get to experience a time when there was no electricity. We try to make it real to them that there’s no electric lights. After dark, you go to bed or sit by a lamp. It just makes history come alive to the children, and I think Mint Hill , North Carolina
they are fascinated by that.” McDonald said one structure in particular rarely disappoints in its reaction. “That’s my favorite part, to take them on the tour and show them the ‘necessary house,’” she said of the outhouse. “They’re astounded and honestly don’t believe that we’re telling them the truth.” Adults are equally enthused by another annual event: the Christmas Teas. McDonald begins fielding calls as early as August for the four December events, where the schoolhouse is rearranged to help accommodate about 40 guests enjoying sweet and savory baked goods and a holiday gift shop. “It’s such a great annual trip for so many people that we don’t have any problem filling up our tea rooms at all,” McDonald said. This year, the Mint Hill Historical Society’s ceaseless efforts to preserve the town’s storied past will come full circle. Within the new Novant Health Mint Hill Medical Center, visitors will find displays showcasing medical artifacts collected by the society. From the imminent demise of an old country’s doctor’s office, to the grand opening of a modern medical campus, history is always on display in this forwardlooking town. “I am very proud of what we’re doing here,” McDonald said.

This project began construction in the middle of 2018. The anticipated completion date is October 31, 2018. This project will reconfigure the existing oblique intersection of Bain School Road and Lawyers Road into a roundabout. This multi-lane roundabout will eliminate the current sharp curve and intersection which NCDOT classified as a high-hazard intersection. The new roundabout is designed to help reduce crashes and keep traffic moving safely. Like most construction projects, it will cause inconvenience in the short term, but it’s for long term gain. Traffic will remain open through the work zone with the use of lane closures and flaggers for the majority of the project (i.e. it will not close completely to traffic). Limited closures are scheduled to occur during the construction. Sign boards will be in place to notify drivers of the exact dates. The reconfiguration into a roundabout will occur in two phases: The first phase will be the conversion of the existing intersection into a roundabout with the same directions of travel and road alignments. The second phase will add an additional direction of travel to the adjacent property slated for future development (the site formerly known as the "mall site") and a bypass lane for vehicles traveling toward I-485 on Lawyers Road.
