Red Dirt Alert! New Iredell Health Mooresville Facility

Have you noticed the large tract of recently graded land off Bluefield Road (behind Lake Norman Realty’s Mooresville Office) and wondered, “what will that be?” I’m happy to report this 17-acre site is the new location for Iredell Health System’s new Mooresville facility.  The ground-breaking ceremony was this morning, and John Green, President and CEO, of Iredell Health System (pictured below) shared many details for the new facility.  The total project will be 200,000 square feet and will employ 1750 at the new facility upon completion.  The first phase will be 68,000 square feet and is planned to open in June 2021. Green shared in his remarks, “We are dedicated to being high touch, high tech, high quality, and highly reliable.”  Iredell Health System is a local community non-profit organization.

Lake Norman Realty January 2020 Calendar

Historic Croft Schoolhouse

Download this month’s Lake Norman calendar here

Happy New Year and welcome to 2020!  Our January calendar features a local landmark only minutes from downtown Charlotte and Lake Norman.  The Historic Croft Schoolhouse, located in North Mecklenburg County was built in 1890 as a community school. Croft was a small farming village with the Davis General Store as the village hub. The Davis General Store remains in operation and is a step back into time offering traditional mercantile and local favorites.

The Croft School remained in operation as a school until the 1930’s when school consolidation across the state left it vacant.  As Charlotte grew the village of Croft was absorbed into the Charlotte city limits, and over the years the building served many other purposes. In the late 1990’s the Charlotte Historic Landmark Commission deemed the Croft area a Historic District and restored the Croft Schoolhouse, and it began its new chapter as an operational building.  In 2012 the founders of Pioneer Springs Community School discovered the historic building and they decided to grow a new community school in this special place. Since then, the little school has grown into a tuition-free, public charter school and their campus now sprawls both directions and includes another historic property, the Davis House on the south end of the campus and the Asbury building on the north end of the campus.  The school is currently enrolling for their 2020-21 school year for grades Kindergarten-9th grade.  The school grows a grade each year through 12th grade.
