The Town of Cornelius, the second youngest of Mecklenburg County’s six incorporated towns, was founded in 1893, but not incorporated until March 4, 1905. The town’s origin has been traced by many historians to a dispute over cotton weighing. The Town of Cornelius is a highly diverse community with ten public parks, a wide variety of housing opportunities, vibrant retail and office centers and a championship golf course.
