Visit Leah & Louise, A Modern Juke Joint In North Carolina With Food To Soothe The Soul
Finding a new favorite place to dine could be as simple as paying a visit to a modern juke joint in Charlotte known as Leah & Louise. Aside from the innovative Southern-inspired menu, the history of the locale is a another reason to love this eatery. It’s found at Camp North End, which is comprised of 67 acres of repurposed buildings and warehouses whose former lives included a 1924 factory for the Ford Motor Company that would go on to build more than 300,000 Model T and Model A cars in this very spot. Later, the US Army took over the facility and added five more warehouses so this locale could serve as a Quartermaster Depot. Later, during the Cold War, the government would redirect the focus here to building missiles – and this would be from where the name Camp North End was derived, or at least the “camp” part. Camp, or CAMP, was short for “Charlotte Area Missle Plant.”
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
