Cornelius History

The quaint Town of Cornelius NC sits directly on the pristine shores of Lake Norman.  Originating as a farm community in 1893 which produced cotton, this little town grew over the years.  The initial change which established the town’s business sector more securely was the construction of a cotton mill to convert cotton grown locally into cloth.  The town of Cornelius is thus named after the original investor of this cotton mill.

Just as influential in the town’s development and growth through the years was the creation of Lake Norman by damming the Catawba River in 1963.  With an endless source of hydroelectric power and additional recreational activities for its residents, the town couldn’t help but expand.
