Stopped to see some history of Charlotte. Nice museum and then tour of the Alexander stone house. Very good tour of a original home of the early nineteenth century. Ringing the huge bell was unique. Well worth the time.

The museum is a bit difficult to navigate: LOTS of signs to read which can get a bit boring. Thought the museum of history would have more artifacts. Best part is the tour of the property. Interesting historical facts, especially about architecture and life in...More

Touring the Hezikiah Alexander House with a docent was a great experience. Dress in period costume, she was knowledgable, funny and connected well with a diverse group. The spring house and kitchen garden are also interesting, The museum is okay, certainly worth a walk-through.

I enjoyed the whole museum, but especially the tour of the Hezekiah Alexander Homesite. That was great for photos, too. The tour guide was very knowledgeable.

See up close and personal the history of Mecklenburg county. The house tour is guided by a very experienced guide who was extremely knowledgeable. Saw the largest bell in the US and learned about the Charlotte gold rush as well. Worth the trip
