Mint Hill, North Carolina

Mint Hill is a major suburban town near Charlotte, North Carolina, located in southeastern Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. Its population is approximately 27,000, an increase of over 5,000 in the past decade. Located near Matthews, North Carolina, Mint Hill has become a popular living location for people looking for a small-town setting still close to the Charlotte city center.

One of the major features that makes Mint Hill attractive to residents is its rural feel. This is in large part due to the efforts of Mint Hill town leaders to keep big chain businesses out of the town center. Unlike what has become of other ex-small towns across the nation, the traditional Main Street has not become overrun by fast food restaurants or Walmarts. Instead, local small businesses line a wonderful walking stretch and contribute to a vibrant local economy.

In recent years, Mint Hill has fought to shed its reputation as a bedroom town—a place where people might have lived, but worked and played elsewhere. Now, the town center has become a magnet for residents to come shop, eat, and play at many small businesses. Go to Mint Hill Veteran Memorial Park on a Saturday morning, and the fields will be filled with soccer and flag football games sponsored by the Mint Hill Athletics Association. In addition, Monroe Hardware Company is a local hardware store that caters to any outdoor supply needs one could have.

Children in Mint Hill attend a variety of highly rated schools. Under the Charlotte-Mecklenburg school system, students living in Mint Hill attend schools like Bain Academy Elementary, Mint Hill Middle, and Independence, Butler, and Rocky River High Schools. Bain Academy and Mint Hill Middle are both ranked in the top third of elementary and middle schools in the Charlotte area, according to third party ranking system Carolina School Hub. Butler competes at the 4A level for athletics and is known for its successful football team.

Since Mint Hill is in Mecklenburg County, its justice system falls under Mecklenburg County jurisdiction.
