Touring the Hezikiah Alexander House with a docent was a great experience. Dress in period costume, she was knowledgable, funny and connected well with a diverse group. The spring house and kitchen garden are also interesting, The museum is okay, certainly worth a walk-through.

See up close and personal the history of Mecklenburg county. The house tour is guided by a very experienced guide who was extremely knowledgeable. Saw the largest bell in the US and learned about the Charlotte gold rush as well. Worth the trip
