Discover Historic Matthews
And the Best Southern Comfort Food in Town
A flourishing historic community, Matthews’ convenient location and small-town feel make it a great place to live. In fact, Matthews is consistently ranked as one of the safest places to live and one of the best places to raise a family.
Another bonus? Seasonal events like the Cool Vibes Winter Concert Series; spring and summer’s Beats n’ Bites; BeachFest Matthews in May; July’s Fun Family 4th; and December’s Hometown Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration.Historic Downtown Matthews is home to Renfrow’s Hardware, a 120-year-old store located along Trade Street, and every Saturday, a not-to-miss stop is the Matthews Farmers Market, the largest producer-only farmers market in the Charlotte area.
For history buffs, the Train Depot and Visitor’s Center tells the rich history of the railroads that contributed to Matthews’ growth and for another look at “times gone by” visit the Matthews Heritage Museum and the Historic Reid House.
Matthews truly has something for everyone:
