CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Set atop a hill on the wooded grounds of the Charlotte Museum of History is a two-story stone house built in 1774.
Home to early patriot Hezekiah Alexander, his wife Mary Sample and their 10 children, the 5,000-square-foot “Rock House” is the oldest surviving structure in Mecklenburg County.
The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and accompanied by a reproduction log kitchen, barn and reconstructed two-story springhouse.
When the museum is open, guided tours of the homesite are included with admission. Currently, the museum and grounds are temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
