Imagine a gorgeous water town so close to one of the biggest financial centers in the country that you can be there in minutes. Now, imagine leaving the busy city and office behind every night to spend the evening firing up the grill on a deck that overlooks Lake Norman or taking the boat out as a cool breeze blows off the water. Welcome to Cornelius.
Cornelius sits just north of Charlotte, along the eastern shores of Lake Norman, North Carolina's largest manmade lake. Interstate 77 runs right through the center of both towns, which is just one reason why professionals choose to work at one of the big banks and businesses Charlotte is known for and take the short commute home to their peaceful homes on the water.
Cornelius is known for its charming green space — it is home to 10 parks — as well as its diverse community and housing options. It also has its own world-class golf course.
Cornelius did not become an incorporated town until 1905 after two Davidson cotton firms got into a fight over whether or not to elect an official cotton weigher. One side didn't like the results and picked up its cotton business and moved to the area south of Davidson. Bad roads in Davidson made the Cornelius area more appealing to cotton farmers, and eventually, Joseph Benjamin Cornelius invested enough to build a cotton mill in the area. The community named the town after him to thank him, and today, the Historic Preservation Committee works to preserve the area's history.
When it comes to attractions in Cornelius, obviously Lake Norman is the big appeal. However, there is much more to the community. Cornelius has a sprawling country club. The entire area is home to countless restaurants that offer up a variety of cuisines for all budgets.
Our Town Cinemas (Temporarily closed) – The Charlotte Observer named Our Town Cinema in nearby Davidson one of the "top 10 places to go" in the Charlotte area. The quaint theater runs new movies on its four screens. It also features bistro tables in each screening room, so movie-goers can dine on dishes like pizza, burgers, and wraps, as well as beer and wine.
Like any lake town, Cornelius is home to miles of beautiful lakeside homes. Many of them sit on wooded lots, and even several of the neighborhoods that are not right on the lake offer beautifully landscaped yards, natural lots, and mature growth trees. Of course, also like any lake town, the waterfront homes can range in price, and there are many multi-million-dollar estates in the area, ranging from old European to modern traditional styles. You will also find a number of newly built Southern-style homes in the area with rocking chair front porches. In Davidson, many communities sit along the town's greenway paths that provide residents a safe trail along which they can walk right into town.
