Friends of Fourth Ward, established in 1976, is an active neighborhood association of individual and business members dedicated to the community development and preservation of the historic inner-city Fourth Ward neighborhood of Charlotte.
The historic Fourth Ward neighborhood artfully blends restored 100-plus-year-old Victorian homes, with luxury condominiums, urban apartments, parks and businesses. This collection of quaint and charming meets urban contemporary offers a residential experience that has made Fourth Ward a premier uptown community.
Approximately 30 city blocks, this stately neighborhood is bordered by the Tryon Street business and entertainment district, the historic Elmwood Cemetery, and lively Trade Street. It is anchored by the beautiful Fourth Ward Park. Wandering through narrow tree-lined streets, visitors delight in seeing the grand old Victorians with gingerbread millwork, charming front porches and courtyard gardens.
