Architect Would Be Proud.
C.C. Hook, the first architect in Charlotte, completed this home in 1901
for Robert Jefferson Walker. It was designated an historical landmark in
1974, but has since suffered from years of neglect in a declining
neighborhood. Recently, this area was targeted for revitalization in
Charlotte’s South End Development, and the result was the renovation of
this beautiful old home.
Salvaging the original materials was a costly, but necessary, process in
order to maintain the historical accuracy of the property. All work had
to be approved by the Historical Landmarks Commission, as well as the
Dilworth Historical Neighborhood Association.
The final result is that the home has become one of Charlotte’s
historical treasures, and a positive influence on the historical
development of this area of town.
