About CameronWood
About Us
 
The Cameron Wood neighborhood is located on 386 acres of land that, in earlier years, was a hunting preserve owned by the Belk family. The property, which includes a man-made pond constructed years ago by a farmer living on the property, was, at one time, considered a possible location for a major shopping mall but was thought to be too far from the center of Charlotte to be suitable. Eventually, in an exchange of properties, the Harris family became the owners of the property, and the Belk family took over the land that would one day become the site of SouthPark Mall. Cameron Wood is named for Mr. Cameron Harris.

Mulvaney Homes bought the land from the Harris family with the help of UDC Homes, Inc., for approximately $10 million. Eventually, UDC bought out Mulvaney Homes and took over the property. The neighborhood covenants were filed by UDC on July 8, 1986, and the first house was completed that same year. In 1996, the remaining homesites were sold by UDC to David Weekly Homes. David Weekly completed their work in Cameron Wood in 2000.

The Cameron Wood community was initially composed of five different villages: Park Springs, Stone Croft, Wingfield, Glen Laurel, and Deer Brooke, and would grow to become the largest planned community in Charlotte/Mecklenburg until the Highland Creek community was built in the northeastern part of the county. The Glen Laurel village served as the site of Home Arama in 1988. Cameron Wood is currently the site of nearly 804 completed houses and 1 vacant lot. Click here for a map of the area.

When the neighborhood was initially opened in 1986, only one entrance existed (the current "middle" entrance), and Park Road was only two lanes wide. The southern entrance (where Park Rd. and Johnston Rd. meet) was opened in 1988, and the northern entrance (across from South Mecklenburg High School) was opened in 1990. Between 1989 and 1991, Park Road was widened from two lanes to the six-lane thoroughfare that we have today.
 

Cameron Wood History

Cameron Wood is named for Mr. Cameron Harris.  Mr. Harris owned the property prior to its development into a residential community.

The Cameron Wood neighborhood is located on 386 acres of land that, in earlier years, was a hunting preserve owned by the Belk family.  The property was, at one time, considered a possible location for a major shopping mall but was thought to be too far from the center of Charlotte to be suitable.  Eventually, in an exchange of properties, the Harris family became the owners of the property, and the Belk family took over the land that would one day become the site of SouthPark Mall.

The property contains a one-acre natural spring-fed pond.  Prior to the development of Cameron Wood, the pond was used to water horses and cattle. At one point, the state record for smallmouth bass was caught here.

Mulvaney Homes bought the land from the Harris family with the help of funding from UDC Homes, Inc., for approximately $10 million.  Eventually, UDC bought out Mulvaney Homes and took over the property.  The neighborhood covenants were filed by UDC on July 8, 1986, and the first house was completed that same year.  In 1996, the remaining homesites were sold by UDC to David Weekly Homes.  David Weekly completed their work in Cameron Wood in 2002.

The Cameron Wood community is composed of five different villages: Park Springs, Stone Croft, Wingfield, Glen Laurel, and Deer Brooke.  Cameron Wood was the largest planned community in Charlotte/Mecklenburg until the Highland Creek community was built in the northeastern part of the county.  The Glen Laurel village served as the site of Home Arama in 1988.
