Cornelius NC Real Estate

Cornelius is a North Mecklenburg town which is located south of Davidson and north of Huntersville.  Founded in the late 1800's, the town did not officially incorporate until 1905.  The town was originally known as "Liverpool", was named after Joseph Benjamin Cornelius, who supplied the needed capital to start the first cotton mill in Cornelius during the late 1880's.

Today, there's small-town Cornelius on the east side of I-77 and newer neighborhoods on the west side of I-77, offering shopping, restaurants and proximity and access to Lake Norman.  Cornelius has been dedicated to providing pedesterian-friendly communities to its growing population.  Residents find it a quick commute to the adjoining towns of Davidson or Huntersville, or an easy 20-minute drive to the uptown area of Charlotte. Cornelius offers homes for buyers of all price ranges and sizes, from quaint neo-traditional bungalows to high-end lakeshore living on Lake Norman.    Cornelius has its own branch of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library system, the Lake Norman YMCA,  an annual Christmas parade, and many parks: Bailey Road park, Cornelius Arts Center, Jetton Road Neighborhood Park, and Walter Henderson Park.  Cornelius boasts great schools, sending children to Cornelius Elementary, Bailey Middle and W.A. Hough High School or a variety of other private-school options nearby.
