The Thomasboro-Hoskins neighborhood is just west of I-85, south of Rozzelles Ferry Road, three miles northwest of downtown Charlotte, North Carolina. Considered an up-and-coming area, Thomasboro-Hoskins used to be a heavily industrial area. The mills and factories are being converted into lofts, attracting artists and young professionals to the area.
Thomasboro-Hoskins is two miles northwest of Johnson C. Smith University, a historically African-American liberal arts university that was established shortly after the Civil War. It is one of Charlotte’s few remaining examples of Victorian industrial architecture. Hoskins Park features a playground, basketball courts, and walking trails. The Thomasboro Recreation Center holds community events and classes.
