HISTORY with a DISTINCTLY NEW ATTITUDE 

Although undeveloped during much of Charlotte’s early history, by 1929 the 3rd Ward became a center of industrial and warehouse buildings that supported the city’s rising importance as a Southeastern distribution hub.  

The two metal buildings of The Queen City Foundry company opened in 1928 and remained in operation until 1985. They are the only South Cedar Street buildings not constructed from masonry and are a significant example of the importance of 3rd Ward industrial buildings and the role they played the evolution of the city.

The Foundry is adjacent to the Woodlawn residential neighborhood, an early streetcar suburb from the 20’s.
