Historical Event >> Governor Morrison 1921
Cameron Morrison is the third Charlottean to serve as North Carolina's governor. His tireless campaign for better roads will earn him a nickname: the "Good Roads Governor." In 1926, he will build a farm southeast of Charlotte and call it "Morrocroft." It will have 750 cattle, 300 pigs, and 50,000 chickens. Within 50 years, the Morrocroft farm will give rise to some of Charlotte's most prestigious suburbs: Southpark, Barclay Downs and Foxcroft.
