Mooresville Home Inspection News and Info




The area Mooresville was settled upon had already had Europeans upon it prior to 1856. Two very large and prosperous plantations, Mount Mourne Place and Belmont, were in the area with Belmont being in place well before the Revolutionary War. There are several other smaller plantations in the area, and many farms in the area as well. Well before the Europeans came though, The Catawba Indians used the area as hunting grounds, and legend holds that in the area is an old Indian burial mound, which is yet to be discovered.

Mooresville was once home to a professional minor league baseball. The Mooresville Moors played in the Class D North Carolina State League from 1937-1942. The league ceased operations for two seasons due to World War II but was reorganized in 1945. For that season's team was known as the Mooresville Braves, due to the fact it was part of the Boston Braves farm system. The following season, 1946, the club returned to its traditional Moors nickname and remained in the league until it disbanded after the 1952 season. In 1953 a new Class D league, known as the Tar Heel League, was formed and the Mooresville Moors were members during its one season of existence. At least two former members of the Moors went on to play in the Major Leagues, pitchers Dave Jolly and Hoyt Wilhelm, who was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
