Huntersville is located in the state of North Carolina and is a large suburban town in Mecklenburg County. Huntersville was considered as the first Lake Norman town that is in the northern part of Charlotte that is in Mecklenburg County and was then renamed from Craighead to Huntersville after and in honor of the principal landowner, Robert Boston Huner, who was a cotton farmer that is settling in the area. The area was incorporated in 1873 as Huntersville, and because of the town's fertile land and a rail line, it promoted a quick growth of the town's economy. The area was already designated as a municipality even before Huntersville was established and was named after its founding fathers, steam engines that carried passengers on rails.
