Waxhaw Living

The Waxhaw and Marvin, North Carolina area began to grow in the late 1800s when railroad tracks connected the region to Atlanta. In these early years, cotton was the primary crop and stimulator of the local economy. The profitability of cotton changed in the 1960s, and Waxhaw in particular had to transition away from dependence on the crop. Small businesses began to take hold and Waxhaw developed a reputation for specialty shopping and dining. The community's center is now known as the Waxhaw Historic District.

Residents and visitors may learn more about the region's history at the Museum of the Waxhaws and Andrew Jackson Memorial. Jackson was a local to Waxhaw prior to being elected as our country's seventh president. The museum maintains artifacts of the Waxhaw Indians and early European settlers. There is also a permanent exhibit dedicated to the American Revolution.

Golf is popular in Union County and there are plenty of courses to indulge residents. Firethorne Country Club is in Waxhaw, and several facilities are located within 30 minutes. Private courses include The Club at Longview and Providence Country Club. For public golfing, try the Ballantyne Resort and Charlotte Golf Links.

A short drive into Charlotte provides a large selection of recreational activities. A large amusement park, Paramount's Carowinds, is always a great choice for a day of family fun. Cultural activities, such as the symphony, and professional NFL and NBA games can also be enjoyed in Charlotte.

Union County weather is generally mild, with temperatures ranging from the low 30s to the low 90s. The coolest month is usually January, with the warmest temperatures occurring in July. Precipitation averages between three and five inches monthly, with the most rain falling in March.
