Cramerton is a small town with picturesque natural features located about 15 miles west of Charlotte. This historic town was created as a “model mill village” in the early 20th century, and today provides a peaceful residential community with serene water views, beautiful mountains and lush greenery throughout.

Lifestyle and Attractions

With a rich history grounded in the textile industry, Cramerton has evolved into a laid-back modern-day residential community. It is particularly desirable for those who work in Charlotte, but want to retreat to a smaller town just a few miles away. Cramerton residents may visit Charlotte and other nearby cities for events, restaurants, shops and other big city attractions. However, they enjoy the quiet life and natural beauty that Cramerton provides.

 

Goat Island is a 30-acre island in the center of Cramerton that has been transformed into a recreational wonderland. Residents take advantage of the treehouse-style playground, green space, walking trails and serene waters by going fishing, canoeing, kayaking, disc golfing, walking, jogging and biking. Cramer Mountain Club is an inclusive, family-oriented facility with a pool, golf course, fitness center, tennis courts, restaurants and more. This is a popular area for surrounding residents and those residing around the golf course to visit for recreation, relaxation and socialization.

History

Originally called Maysworth, Cramerton is named for Stuart Cramer, a textile engineer who established May Mills in the early 20th century and created a “model mill village”. The paved streets, concrete sidewalks and homes with electricity and indoor plumbing created a model for other mill villages around the South. Cramer built Maymont, a home modeled after an English manor house, on a mountain that was later named Cramer Mountain. Its innovative design featured materials native to the mountain and a swimming pool serving as a reservoir if the mills were to catch fire. Maymont held many parties for the elite, including Presidents Herbert Hoover and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Cramerton ultimately transitioned from a mill village to a residential community, particularly attractive for Charlotte commuters.
