Preserving our Past, Protecting our Future

The Camp Greene Neighborhood is a vibrant residential community,  located just one mile from uptown Charlotte. Camp Greene is a great community for people who want to live near the city, and still have a laid-back neighborhood atmosphere.   With single family homes built as early as the 1930's, the community offers a great, affordable opportunity to put down roots in the City of Charlotte, NC.

Our Story

Camp Greene was a United States Army facility in Charlotte, North Carolina, United States during the early 20th century. In 1917, both the 3rd Infantry Division and the 4th Infantry Divisions were first organized and assembled at this camp. Named Camp Greene, after the Revolutionary War hero, Nathanael Greene, the camp was established at Charlotte, North Carolina in 1917. At that time, the population of Charlotte was approaching its 1920 total of 46,000, and so was roughly equivalent to the 40,000 soldiers who trained at Camp Greene.

The centerpiece of our community and the largest remaining element of the Historic Camp Greene is the Dowd House. The Historic Down House (1879) was used as the Commandants Quarters when the area was a WWI Training Camp.
