Grace AME Zion Church
This red-brick building is a good example of Victorian Gothic religious architecture, constructed by noted black mason W.W. Smith. It is one of Charlotte's oldest black churches and the only religious building which survives in what was once the largest black residential and business area in Charlotte, known as Brooklyn. The church's early membership included the leaders of the city's AfroAmerican community, including foreign diplomat Dr. J.T. Williams and businessman Thaddeus L. Tate.
Neal Somers Alexander House
Special significance in terms of its history, architecture, and/or cultural importance. The Commission judges that the property known as the N. S. Alexander House does possess special significance in terms of Charlotte-Mecklenburg. The Commission bases its judgment on the following criteria: 1) the N. S. Alexander is among the most significant examples of Queen Anne Victorian architecture surviving in Mecklenburg County; 2) the N. S. Alexander House is a remnant of the fast-disappearing rural built environment of late 19th and early twentieth century Mecklenburg County; 3) the N. S. Alexander House was built for N. S. Alexander, a direct descendant of Hezekiah Alexander and a member of one of the most important families in the early history of Mecklenburg County.
