Derita

When Derita was established in 1883 on the AT&O Railroad, it was a separate town, just like Matthews, Corneliuis, Davidson, and Pineville.  It still retains remnants of its small town built environment.  Charlotte has absorbed much of historic Derita, but there is still time to keep some sense of cultural continuity in the community.  But time is short. Especailly important is a string of Craftsman style houses just west of the rairoad tracks.
