Waxhaw Commissioner Joyce Blythe and lifelong resident Melvin Faris began hosting historic walking tours around downtown Waxhaw in 2002. On the group tours, Blythe and Faris describe the historic architecture and share stories about early life and business downtown. In 2010, the first self-guided historic walking tour map was printed.
Our current map is a comprehensive guide to our historic downtown business and residential district. This brochure also includes a vicinity map of the area with nearby points of interest beyond and south of of downtown Waxhaw.
We hope you will enjoy your walking, automobile or bicycle tour of historic Waxhaw and the surrounding area so rich in local culture and history.
