A century later, railroad tracks were laid through the center of town and Waxhaw was incorporated in 1889. Today, Waxhaw NC real estate is in demand as the area flourishes and attracts new residents.
The railroad remains in the centerpiece of a uniquely preserved historic village, buzzing with restaurants, shops and train-watchers from the rustic overhead bridge crossing the train tracks. Cotton manufacturing was important to the region through the 1940s. The town’s historic mill rests on the edge of town, awaiting a potential renovation project.
