Mecklenburg County Park and Rec is seeking a national designation for the
Robinson Rock House ruins in Reedy Creek Nature Preserve. The state has declared the ruins as "regionally significant" and recommends that the site be placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Robinson Rock House ruins are the remains of a stone house, circa 1780s, which was similar in construction to the Hezekiah Alexander House at the Charlotte Museum of History on Shamrock Road. The Robinsons were farmers, among the first settlers in Mecklenburg County. The ruins are in the Reedy Creek Nature Preserve, and can be seen after about a 15 minute walk through the woods. The County is working with a local expert on the Robinson Rock House in seeking the national designation.
