Cornelius

Why you'd want to live in Cornelius

The town of Cornelius, the second youngest of Mecklenburg County’s six incorporated towns, was founded in 1893 but not incorporated until March 4, 1905. The Town’s origin has been traced by many historians to a dispute over cotton weighing. As a gateway to Lake Norman, Cornelius has become an attractive residential location with 21,000 residents. The popular area around Lake Norman has spawned numerous residential and commercial developments to serve its growing population.
