The land SouthPark sits on was once part of a 3,000+ acre farm owned by then N.C. Governor Cameron Morrison. Today, his land has been transformed into one of NC most successful live/work/play communities.
Gov. Morrison’s farm originally stretched from the Cotswold area to Quail Hollow. His home, The Historic Morrocroft Mansion, built in the 1920’s, still remains in SouthPark today on it’s original site. The 14,000 sq ft mansion is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and was owned by the Morrison/Harris family until 1981. Today, the home remains as an amazing restored private residence.
