Elizabeth is an historic neighborhood near Uptown Charlotte that began to develop around 1907 after a trolly line was completed in Charlotte. The neighborhood takes its name from Elizabeth College, a small Lutheran women’s college founded in 1897 on the present-day site of Presbyterian Hospital. A beautiful feature of this area is the mature canopy of oak trees that provides shades for walkers and residents of the small historic bungalows lined up in close proximity to one another along the streets.
Elizabeth is known for being very pedestrian-friendly, with a ‘Walk Score’ of 72, the highest in Charlotte. (The national average walk score is 34.) Sidewalks throughout and the comfort of continual shade are to credit for this ranking. Along 7th Street, old houses that have been converted into a variety of shops, offices, and restaurants. An award-winning small area plan and development project are underway to revitalize Elizabeth Avenue. A substantial portion of the neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Elizabeth Historic District. Two of Charlotte’s main hospitals (Presbyterian Hospital and Mercy Hospital), are located in Elizabeth, and a number of medical offices line Randolph Road which is a corridor through this section.
