Town of Matthews History and Origin
Matthews has been named one of the Most Exciting Suburbs in the U.S., one of the Top Ten Suburban Cities in America; one of the Top Ten Places to Retire in N.C., and one of the Top Ten Best Cities in N.C. While we are excited to be recognized for who we are now - we have a rich history.
Nestled between Charlotte and Monroe, the area now known as Matthews was unspoiled rolling woodlands with large stands of trees. By the early 1800s, this rich and inviting land attracted our early settlers, who were mainly farmers. In the vicinity lay the trading trails and game-rich hunting grounds, ancestral homes of the Waxhaw and Catawba Indians. These farmers began clearing the land for planting around 1800. Cotton grew well and soon became the primary cash crop. As the land was cleared for planting, so many tree stumps were left standing that the early settlement was unofficially known as Stumptown.
