Local History





William Bratton House, ca. 1923


631 North Brevard Street

UTM 17 515124E 3898485N


This masonry home is significant as one of the very few surviving historic homes in First Ward.  With the development of suburbs such as Eastover and Country Club Acres for Charlotte's white citizens and  McCrorey Heights for the city's black citizens, the William Bratton house may have been one of the last substantial homes built in the Uptown area.  The house is also notable for its state of the aret "fireproof" construction.
