Current Waxhaw Homes for Sale
Waxhaw, North Carolina
Waxhaw, located about 20 miles from downtown Charlotte, is known for its small-town vibe and large-acre properties. Located in Union County, it’s also home to some of the highest-ranked public schools in the state. With a population of just over 10,000, people are clamoring to raise their families here, causing Waxhaw to become one of the fastest-growing regions around Charlotte.
The area takes its name from the Native American tribe that once lived here. These beautiful rolling hills and abundant woodlands are near the site where gold was first discovered in the Carolinas, triggering an infamous gold rush that grew the area until the California gold rush overshadowed it. The first European settlers came to this area in the mid-1800s, mostly Scots, both Irish and German. In time, the arrival of the railroad, which connected the area to Atlanta’s markets, and the growth of the textile industry resulted in Waxhaw becoming well-established.
As textile jobs began to disappear, Waxhaw shifted its focus and became a center for fine dining and antiques. Careful and persistent development in the historic town center has resulted in numerous shops and dining establishments, casual and upscale. The entire Waxhaw Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Nearby Cane Creek Park, a state park, offers more than 1000 acres of recreation, camping, hiking, and more. Area events include the annual Queen’s Cup and a family-friendly Fourth of July Parade!
