Think you know all there is to know about one of Charlotte’s fastest-growing suburbs? Think again! Mooresville’s population may be exploding, up nearly 75% in just the last decade, but the city’s got a rich history.
Here are a few fun facts about Mooresville you can use to impress your friends!
1. Mooresville’s unofficial “First Family” is, of course, the Moores. The city was actually called “Moore’s Siding” until March 1873 when it was incorporated, much of its land having been donated by the greater Moore clan.
2. The city’s most famous historical resident is an odd one. Dr. Selma Burke created a bust of President Franklin D. Roosevelt that later became the inspiration for his likeness on the dime coin. How about that!
