The 1774 Alexander Rock House is one of the oldest buildings in North Carolina, the oldest house in Mecklenburg County, and the last-standing home of a signer of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence, Hezekiah Alexander. The 5,000-square-foot home includes an attic and basement. In 1768, the Alexanders moved their family of five children from Pennsylvania as part of the Great Wagon Road migration. Hezekiah and his wife, Mary, went on to raise 10 children at their lovely homestead in the woods, now part of the Charlotte Museum of History.
