Great Lake Living at Lake Norman

On behalf of the Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce and our more than 800+ active business members, it is a pleasure to welcome you to the Lake Norman region. The last couple of years have been challenging for our community and nation as we dealt with the impact of a pandemic on our families and livelihoods. Our citizens and business community responded to those challenges with determination, resilience, and innovation and we emerged stronger as a community. Those dark days behind us, the sun is again shining brightly as we embrace our new opportunities. Nestled on the banks of the beautiful Lake Norman, our lake towns offer the perfect opportunity for both visitors and newcomers to enjoy the lake living lifestyle of Cornelius and Mooresville, the smalltown college charm of Davidson, and the vitality of Huntersville with its abundant shopping and recreational facilities. Lake Norman, located just outside of Charlotte, provides visitors and newcomers with a window to the past and an eye to the future. The lake is home to the land where the Catawba Indians once walked, and the early European settlers made their stand. Today, it is home to vibrant business parks and retail centers. New neighborhoods have


emerged, and families have relocated to the region, making Lake Norman one of the fastest growing regions in the country. Our proximity to the cultural opportunities of Charlotte, mixed with the charm and lake living lifestyle of our small towns make Lake Norman a great place to work, live and visit. We encourage you to use this important resource with our buyer’s guide (beginning on page XX?) to Shop the Lake and enjoy our diverse array of retailers, shopping centers and restaurants. Treat yourself to the Charlotte region’s premier parks or take in one of our historical sites. We hope Great Lake Living gives you a glimpse into why so many new families are making Lake Norman their home. Visitors and residents can browse VisitLakeNorman. org for more information on dining and entertainment, and newcomers and prospective businesses can find out more about the region at LakeNormanChamber. org. Again, on behalf of our business community and our lake towns we welcome you to Lake Norman.

Sincerely, W.E. “Bill” Russell, CCE President Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce

How it All Began A timeline of Lake Norman’s creation Early 1900s - James B. Duke and Dr. W. Gil Wylie began brainstorming how a series of damns on the Catawba River could provide hydroelectricity to residents of the South.

COMPILED BY RENEE ROBERSON Today - Lake Norman remains a peaceful respite for an extraordinary community of people. Other notable facts:

Sept. 28, 1959 - Duke Power (now Duke Energy) breaks ground on the Cowans Ford Dam. 1963 – Bill Lee, the grandson of William S. Lee and the chairman of Duke Power Company, led the completion of the dam, which was completed at a length of 7,387 feet. The communities of two river crossings, Sherrill’s Ford and Beatty’s Ford are flooded, along with many original homesites, in order to complete the man-made Lake Norman. 1964 – Duke Power offers more than 2,600 cottage sites with leases starting at $120 a year. 1990s – Charlotte’s thriving business environment attracts more and more residents to the shores of Lake Norman when they realize they can live in a lakeside retreat with only a 30 to 40-minute commute into the city.


Great Lake Living at Lake Norman

The Long Island Mill, one of the earliest cotton mills in the American South, opened in the mid-1800s, and closed in 1959 before being covered by Lake Norman. Underneath the lake, there are the remains of a summer camp that opened in 1938 and the site of the Battle of Cowan’s Ford where General William Lee Davidson fought Lord Cornwallis in 1781. There are also old plantations, old homesites, old highways, there is even an airplane discovered by firefighters using sonar in 2013.

Water Safety

Responsible Boating A look at our area’s personal safety watercraft laws

Living on a lake can be fun, but it’s important to know the rules to keep yourself and other passengers safe while out on the water. The N.C. General Assembly enacted a personal watercraft law that took effect Dec. 1, 1999. On June 30th, 2000 this law was amended. Below is a summary of the law:

Who Can Operate a PWC?

• Anyone 14 years old but younger than 26 can operate a PWC if: - they have successfully completed an approved boating safety education course (proof of age and safety course completion must be carried during operation) - they are riding with a person who is at least 18 and is in compliance with the Boating Education Requirement Law (G.S. 75A-16.2) • It is unlawful for the owner of a PWC to knowingly allow a person younger than 16 to operate a PWC unless they have first completed an approved boating safety education course. • It is unlawful for anyone who has temporary or permanent responsibility for a person younger than 16 to knowingly allow that person to operate a PWC unless they have first completed an approved boating safety education course.

PWC Operation

• No one can operate a PWC on state waters between sunset and sunrise. •All PWC riders, passengers and those being towed must wear approved personal flotation devices. •If the PWC is equipped with a lanyard-type engine cut off switch, the lanyard must be worn by the operator at all times. •A PWC must have a rearview mirror or an observer on board besides the operator to legally tow someone on skis or similar device. •PWCs must be operated at all times in a reasonable and prudent manner. Maneuvers that endanger people or property constitute reckless operation. •No person shall operate a personal watercraft on the waters of this State at greater than no-wake speed within 100 feet of an anchored or moored vessel, a dock, pier,


Great Lake Living at Lake Norman

swim float, marked swimming area, swimmers, surfers, persons engaged in angling, or any manually operated propelled vessel, unless the personal watercraft is operating in a narrow channel (see below). •No person shall operate a personal watercraft in a narrow channel (see below) at greater than no-wake speed within 50 feet of an anchored or moored vessel, a dock, pier, swim float, marked swimming area, swimmers, surfers, persons engaged in angling, or any manually operated propelled vessel. •No person shall operate a PWC towing another person on water skis or similar device unless the total number of persons operating, observing, and being towed does not exceed the number of passengers identified by the manufacturer as the maximum safe load for the vessel. Reckless Operation Includes: • Unreasonable or unnecessary weaving through congested boat traffic. • Jumping the wake of a vessel within 100 feet of the vessel or when visibility is obstructed. • Intentionally approaching a vessel in order to swerve at the last moment. • Operating contrary to the “rules of the road”. • Following too closely (see below) to another vessel, including another personal watercraft. Renting PWCs • No one shall rent a PWC to someone under 16 unless that person meets the conditions in the section “Who Can Operate a PWC?” • A minimum of $300,000 insurance must be carried on each PWC that is rented to the public. Narrow Channel A “narrow channel” means a segment of the waters of the State 300 feet or less in width. • Following too Closely The term “following too closely” means proceeding in the same direction and operating at a speed in excess of 10 miles per hour when approaching within 100 feet to the rear or 50 feet to the side of another vessel that is underway unless that vessel is operating in a narrow channel, in which case a personal watercraft may operate at the speed and flow of other vessel traffic.

Sailing Away How do you rent a boat at the lake? BY RENEE ROBERSON

One of the best things about living in a lake area is . . .well, access to a 34-mile long lake with more than 520 miles of shoreline. Even if you don’t live on the water or own a boat, you can join a boating club or rent a kayak or stand-up paddleboard for a little exercise—through local businesses and the Lake Norman YMCA. But what about if you want to actually just rent a boat for a few hours with some close friends or family? What are some things you need to know? I did a little research to figure out the best way to enjoy a day on the water without the responsibility of boat ownership or maintenance. I reached out to the owners of Cornelius Pontoon Rentals and found out they provide a wealth of information right on their website for anyone interested in renting a boat for the day. Safety first—anyone born after Jan. 1, 1988 must complete and show proof of the NASBLA boating educating course before operating any vessel propelled by a motor of 10 HP or greater. The course is free and available online through Some boat rental places also require you have previous boating experience. Depending on your needs, there are local businesses in the Lake Norman area that offer rentals for WaveRunners and pontoon boats. You reserve a boat in advance for two to four hours and meet the boat at one of the local boat ramps (such as Blythe Landing or Ramsey Creek Park). In many cases, the boat rental company stocks the boat with coolers of ice and snacks, swimming noodles and directions for places to see on the lake. You simply get in the boat, take off for a day in the sun, and return the boat to the same dock. Obviously, spring and summer are going to be busier seasons for boating, so make sure to do your research


A Product of Lake Norman CURRENTS Magazine

on the different boat rental companies and plan to make reservations well in advance of when you’d like to go on the lake. In addition to Cornelius Pontoon Rentals, Carolina Boat Rentals is also located in Cornelius. Lake Norman Boat Rental and Sales in Mooresville has a variety of boats for rent, plus experienced drivers for an additional cost if you prefer to go that route, plus tube rental kits. The bottom line is, there are plenty of ways you can enjoy a day out on the lake jet skiing, boating, tubing, docking on an island and swimming to your heart’s desire. I recommend starting at and researching which rental company has the best options for your needs. Then make your reservation, suit up in your jacket (required for children under 13 at all times and recommended for everyone else), and enjoy lake life at its finest.

Live Like a Native

Who is Normie?

Does a mysterious creature dwell in the lake? There have long been sightings of mysterious creatures in different areas of Lake Norman. Author Chuck McShane discussed the origin of these stories in his book A History of Lake Norman: Fish Camps to Ferraris, and resident Matt Myers became intrigued enough to create a website,, designed for people to share their own stories. “I’ve heard fish stories since I moved here in 2001,” says Myers. “A friend and coworker of mine bought a boat not too long after we moved. After spending some time on the boat fishing and boating, my interest piqued in these fish tales . . . I spent the time putting together a small site for people to submit their own monster fish stories. It was just for fun to start with. However, it’s taken on a life of its own and grown over the years.” So just who is Normie? Rumors have abounded for years among locals that there are “catfish the size of Volkswagens” near the dam at Cowans Ford, while others have seen a creature resembling an alligator swimming through the lake. Other speculate there could be large exotic fish jumping through the water as the source of some of these sightings. Fisherman have reported a large creature eating their fish before they could reel the catch in. The work Myers did gathering and cataloguing these sightings led to the website catching the eye of experts and television producers. “Shortly after the site started gaining popularity, I was contacted by a Swedish gentleman by the name of Jan-Ove


Great Lake Living at Lake Norman


Sundberg,” says Myers. “Jan was the Expedition Leader of GUST – the Global Underwater Search Team. He’ s been featured twice on The Learning Channel – most popularly in “Loch Ness: The Search for the Truth.” Jan took quite an interest in Lake Norman. He was even kind enough to write an exclusive introduction for the website back when it was in its infancy. Unfortunately, he passed away a few years ago, but his experience in the field of cryptozoology and his advice was an inspiration to keep the site going.” In 2014, the TV show “America’s Monsters” featured the Lake Norman Monster in an episode titled “Champ & Normie” segment that also included Lake Champlain. Myers and many other Lake Norman community members and leaders were featured in the segment, which is now available for viewing on Amazon Prime. “I worked on a documentary film crew for a couple of years about 15 years ago, so I was accustomed to the setup and lights and cameras, but it was an entirely different experience being in front of the camera,” says Myers. “The crew was great. I had a lot of input into the content and info (except they called Charlotte the capital of N.C… I’ll give them a pass. It was a Canadian crew).” The research into the folklore of Normie has also spanned two books, Lake Norman Monster: A Decade of Sightings, written by Myers and a children’s picture book, Normie the Lake Norman Monster, written by his wife Amy.

Real Estate

You’re Home Here A look at the current housing market INTERVIEW BY LARA TUMER

With more and more people choosing to call the Lake Norman area home, whether through job relocations, a change of lifestyle, retirement, or close proximity to Charlotte, the real estate market remains strong and active. We reached out to Catherine Taylor, a realtor/broker with Allen Tate Company, for her thoughts on the current home sale activity in our area. She shares her thoughts with us below.

to relocate, residents of this area are here to stay. We’re seeing a mass migration from all over the country, but typically from larger cities. Those who are driving around will notice this trend, with out-of-state license plates popping up all over. The draw from outside states doesn’t just come from those bordering North Carolina, but from places like Illinois, California, New York, and beyond.

Here to Stay

Overlooking the Small Things

While the Lake Norman area has transitioned to a seller’s market, there is really not much that’s driving anyone to sell. People who leave this area are not doing so for conventional motives such as quality of life, high taxes, cost of living, or traffic. Unless there is a personal reason resulting in the need


Great Lake Living at Lake Norman

The frenetic market is causing buyers to ignore the things that would have previously been a concern. Prior deal breakers like the need for a new HVAC system or appliances that are close to their life expectancy were previously red flags. Buyers are now willing to overlook inconveniences both big and small to A Product of Lake Norman CURRENTS Magazine 2022-2023

build. While delays in construction have always been expected, this problem is further amplified due to hindered material access. In addition, lack of availability is resulting in bidding wars with builders. Even this sector of the market doesn’t come without its own issues.

Family Affairs

Multi-generational relocation is a huge trend right now in the Lake Norman real estate market. Older buyers are influencing their children and grandchildren to explore this area and vice versa. Siblings are also often moving in tandem from across the country. Half a decade ago, many were inclined to downsize. This is no longer the case. Extended families are now pooling resources to look for homes that can accommodate two master bedrooms, as well as additional guest rooms. With more individuals working from home, the requirement for multiple home offices is also a priority for many.

Expanding City Amenities

The Lake Norman area offers many benefits of city living, in a suburban, lake-front environment. We’re seeing the expansion of fine dining restaurants from the city to this community, as well as a plethora of shopping and entertainment opportunities that simply were not here 5-10 years ago. This is the lifestyle many are looking for.

secure a home in the Lake Norman area. In the same vein, the due diligence policy, which has now been in effect for over 10 years, is resulting in astronomically high deposits. Buyers are often putting down non-refundable deposits over 10 percent of the home price, which is something they just simply can’t and won’t walk away from.

Buyer Challenges

This activity comes after years of work by Ryan McDaniels, head of Lake Norman Economic Development (LNED) and other local leaders to attempt to spur development. McDaniels’ focus now shifts from eagerly pursuing development to finding tenants to occupy the high volume of space that is coming to Huntersville. His team at LNED has done so by adding more virtual tours of sites, he says. “It is exciting for us because I know we’ve missed deals because we just simply haven’t had the right product, and now we’re going to have that option.” North Mecklenburg is in a competitive position for international projects due to being located just 20 minutes from Charlotte Douglas International Airport. The Charlotte airport is the 6th busiest airport in the world and is home to the second largest hub for American Airlines.

The following companies continue to be Lake Norman’s biggest employers, a list which has remained relatively unchanged over the past few years. Trane continues to lead the way with 1,600 employees on its Davidson campus, followed by Davidson College with 750 and MSC (350). McGuire Nuclear Station tops the list for Huntersville at 1,200 employees, followed by Novant Health (690), Metrolina Greenhouses (650), Joe Gibbs Racing (650) and Rubbermaid (400).

More than Barbeque Find a variety of food choices to fit your every craving BY RENEE ROBERSON One thing people in the Lake Norman area love to talk about is the food scene, because there is such a great variety here. Whether you are looking for fine dining, healthy fare, or international cuisine you can eat on an outdoor patio overlooking a charming downtown or lake view, you’ll never get bored of our food options. North Harbor Club Restaurant and Bar offers casual to upscale New American fare in a waterfront setting. From their signature sandwich, the Turkey and Avocado Panini, to signature entrée Brined Pork Loin Chop, there is something for everyone. Guests can eat and sip hand crafted cocktails in the regatta-themed dining room or on one of three waterside patios. They also offer a private dining experience in “The Boat House,” the perfect venue for business and any special occasion. North Carolina is noted for its barbecue, and the lake area is home to several establishments that have legendary followings, such as Lancaster’s BBQ on Beatties Ford Road in Huntersville or Midwood Smokehouse in Birkdale Village. Slow-smoked pork with sauce served in squeeze bottles on the side is the way to go. Don’t forget to try a side of Brunswick Stew or mac and cheese (considered a vegetable here), and a serving of banana pudding for dessert. The owners of popular The Egg Café in Davidson recently opened up The Crazy Pig, a barbeque restaurant offering award-winning barbeque, local craft beer, decadent sides, and more often than not, live music on the outdoor patio.

The Spiritual Side Finding your place of worship BY RENEE ROBERSON

Places of worship are an important part of our community, and many have taken root throughout the towns over the years. Most of the early European settlers here in the 1770s were Scots-Irish or Scottish. History has it that one of the oldest churches in the Lake Norman area began when a group of Christians gathered on the bank of a creek under a bank of trees they called “Ramah Grove.” While the first log structure housing the church was constructed in 1783, the current sanctuary used for Ramah Grove Presbyterian Church was built in 1881. The church still stands today. Hopewell Presbyterian Church off Beatties Ford Road in Huntersville also has a rich history, having been officially founded in 1762. Davidson College Presbyterian Church was founded in 1837. In Cornelius, Bethel Presbyterian Church was founded in 1828 and still

flourishes in the lakeside town as part of the Presbyterian movement called ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians. The community is also home to Grace Covenant Church, which started out as Cornelius Tabernacle under the leadership of Dr. S.K. and Emily Clanton in 1937. Grace Covenant now serves approximately a few thousand parishioners through services at three different campuses; 17301 Statesville Road, Cornelius, 531 N. Greenbriar Road, Statesville and 296 N Hwy 16 in Denver. Serving both the Davidson and Huntersville communities, Lake Forest Church is a member of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church denomination. Freedom to worship all types of denominations is alive and well here. You’ll also find The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Davidson is home to the Davidson

Friends Meeting House for the Quaker Community and Temple Kol Tikvah, serving the Jewish community. To help accommodate the growth brought on by the construction of Lake Norman, St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Mooresville raised funds for the building that still stands today in the early 1960s. You’ll find St. Mark’s Catholic Church in Huntersville and St. Therese Catholic Church in Mooresville. For those who prefer a more contemporary form of worship, there’s also a variety of non-denominational churches spread throughout the area, such as Elevation Church, Journey Church, Newsong Church, LIFE Fellowship Church and many others. These houses of worship are only the beginning of a very long list—because no matter where you prefer to seek out spiritual comfort, you’re sure to find what your soul desires in the towns of Lake Norman.

Great Lake Living at Lake Norman

Since fall 2010, when David Gelinas began announcing for Davidson Wildcats men’s basketball, he’s covered every home game. He watched while the campus court was named for Coach Bob McKillop, saw great young talent De’Mon Brooks, Jake Cohen, Jack Gibbs, Kellan Grady and others ignite the team, and felt the buzz as NBA two-time MVP and Davidson’s all-time leading scorer Stephen Curry returned to John Belk Arena. “Whenever Steph Curry comes back to visit, the student section gets stirred up,” he says. Broadcasting games for decades Gelinas recently retired after nearly 12 years as senior associate dean and director of financial aid at Davidson College. For 40 years, he worked in financial aid at colleges and universities from Michigan to Montana to Tennessee.

And for almost as long, he’s also been broadcasting play-by-plays for their sports teams. As he says, if he’s doing it right, we don’t notice the man behind the mic. “If nobody is talking about what I did at the end of the game, I did it correctly,” he says. “I added to the occasion without calling attention to myself.” Being personable, evaluating nuances of the game, putting moments into context – Gelinas brings it all courtside with his smooth, booming voice. To prepare for every game, he says he researches how to pronounce the names of all the players for the opposing teams and does vocal warmups, including musical scales up and down and blowing bubbles with his lips to loosen things up.

Massachusetts natives David and his wife, Monica, are big sports fans who have followed the Boston Celtics, Patriots, Bruins and especially the Red Sox. But now these Davidson residents, whose two adult sons are living in Virginia and Tennessee, are also rooting fanatically for their black-and-red home team. Other family members are rooting from afar. “My daughter-in-law has said, ‘that’s my father-in-law’s voice in the background!’” says Gelinas. “I never thought someone would be able to say, ‘I heard you on TV.’ When I first started doing this in the early ’80s in Montana, I never thought I would be doing this for a NCAA Division I program or in an NBA arena. I never imagined my stage would have grown as it has. I am honored that Davidson College has given me the privilege to do this.” And for as long as they’ll have him, David Gelinas will continue to call it for the Wildcats.
