Historic Rosedale, at 3427 N. Tryon Street, has been part of Charlotte’s history since 1815, when the house was completed by Archibald Frew, a tax collector and postmaster for the town of Charlotte.
The last people to live in the house were Mary Louise and Alice Davidson, sisters who sold the home and land to the Historic Preservation Foundation of North Carolina in 1985.
