In Huntersville, nature perseveres, with outdoor attractions inviting visitors to interact with protected wildlife and to explore miles of history-rich trails. Huntersville is a large town with a small-town feel and that is one of the best parts. Huntersville is the first Lake Norman town north of Charlotte in Mecklenburg County.
The Town was renamed from Craighead to Huntersville in honor of major landowner and cotton farmer, Robert Boston Hunter. Huntersville officially incorporated in 1873. Fertile land and a rail line promoted quick growth.
