Shortly after the Civil War, a school was started to educate African-American preachers and teachers. The school, which came to be known as Biddle University, was founded in 1867. Eventually, the school developed into the present-day Johnson C. Smith University, a progressive, highly-regarded liberal arts university. The village that grew around the school, Biddleville, is the oldest surviving African-American neighborhood in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Biddleville is west of Beatties Ford Road and south of Brookshire Freeway, about five minutes northwest of downtown Charlotte. The university’s bell tower is a neighborhood landmark, and the university itself is one of the few remaining examples of Victorian institutional architecture in Charlotte. Biddleville is a charming neighborhood of historical bungalow homes with wide lots along narrow, winding streets.
