About the South End & Sedgefield Neighborhood
The history of South End goes back to the mid-1800s, when gold was discovered here, and a railroad line passed through. Over the next few decades, a number of textile mills popped up, including Atherton Mill, which has been transformed into a destination within its historic brick walls, where you’ll find trendy shops like Anthropologie and lululemon along with some of Charlotte’s best restaurants like Indaco and O-Ku.
The Lynx Blue Line light rail runs 19 miles from I-485 through South End and Uptown to the University City area with 26 stations, including New Bern Station, just a quarter-mile from The Edge. The Rail Trail, a multi-purpose trail that parallels the light rail line through South End, is a popular spot for running, biking or walking your dog and features public art and murals along the way.
