Town of Weddington, NC

Located in the northwestern corner of Union County, NC approximately 15 miles southeast of the City of Charlotte is the Town of Weddington. Weddington encompasses approximately 17 square miles or 11,044 acres and currently has a population of 11,420.

The town gets its name from Reuben B. Weddington, a prominent citizen of the area during the late 1800s. He helped to construct a new church building on the land that his grandfather had previously donated. This, along with his other generous financial gifts to the church, and the school that the church operated, led the members to change the name from Sandy Ridge Methodist Episcopal Church to Weddington Methodist Church. The community that continued to grow up around this house of worship took its name and that is how Weddington was first put officially on the map.

Weddington consists almost entirely of single-family homes on lots of one acre or more. The Town’s only commercial area is located in the vicinity of NC 16 and NC 84 and is referred to as the Town Center. Only 27 of the 11,044 acres within Weddington are commercially zoned. Weddington Corners Shopping Center is located at the corner of Providence and Weddington Roads. The Town Hall is located in this area in an old historic house.

The Town tax rate is 3 cents per $100 valuation, which is in addition to Union County taxes. Taxes help to fund a contractual agreement with Union County Sheriff’s office for police officers who are assigned to the Weddington area.

The form of government is Mayor and Council. Council meetings are held the 2nd Monday night each month in the Town Hall at 7:00 p.m. Town Hall hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday or by appointment.
