IN 2014 GRIFFIN MASONRY USED APROXIMATELY 11 MILLION BRICKS! (That's more than enough brick to build the Empire State Building which contains 10 million bricks!)
A large group of colonists settled in an area that was the intersection of two Native American trading paths. This would become what it now the intersection of Trade and Tryon Streets. Over time the population increased and the colonists decided to build a courthouse and name the town. In 1768 the town was named “Charlotte Town” after King George III’s new wife– Queen Charlotte Sophia of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. That is how the city’s name, nickname of “The Queen City”, and the name of its county all originated.
THE HORNET'S NEST
During the Revolutionary war in the 1700’s Britain troops were fighting to take all 13 colonies including North Carolina. During this time, General Cornwallis and his troops were trying to take over the City of Charlotte. The citizens formed a militia and attacked Cornwallis and his troops. The militia was too much for the general and he decided to retreat while calling the city “A Hornet’s Nest of Rebellion”. The Charlotteans proudly took on the nickname of “The Hornet’s Nest”. This is why many of Charlotte’s symbols include a hornet nest, like the Charlotte Police Department on their logo and the shape of their badge and, of course, the basketball team, The Charlotte Hornets.
