Matthews NC History Takes Center Stage This Saturday

Downtown Matthews NC will host the second annual Discover Matthews event on Saturday, May 12, 2012. Discover Matthews celebrates the town’s history and heritage with a series of activities from 10am to 4pm.

Matthews has been very successful in preserving buildings and homes that showcase its heritage. Its historic downtown appeals to those who visit or want to live in a small town that reminds them of simpler times. Charming buildings with restaurants and other enterprises give the immensely walkable downtown a friendly feel and provide a wonderful backdrop for the many community festivals throughout the year.
