Take in some history at the Hugh Torance House and Store

It’s the oldest standing store in North Carolina and is also one of the few surviving 18th-century structures in Mecklenburg County.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (QC Life) - This week’s Cup of Kindness is from the Hugh Torance House and Store.

It’s the oldest standing store in North Carolina and is also one of the few surviving 18th-century structures in Mecklenburg County.

The home was built in 1779 by Hugh and Isabella Torrance. Their son James ran a store in the home from 1805 until 1825.

Their logo is a heart and it stands for History, Ecology, Arts, Reunion, Trails and Store.

It’s the mission that the store uses to share the history of the site.

The store is open on Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. You can also take tours of the home.
