    To an outsider driving down Main Street in Troutman (on the northeast side of Lake Norman), population 1749, Julia's Talley House Restaurant looks like just another charming older home in this quaint town.  But, the locals know better!  If you want to experience true, home-style Southern cooking in a cozy and even homey restaurant, there is simply no where better than Julia's Talley House Restaurant.   Like many of the great eateries frequented by mostly long-time local residents around Lake Norman,  Julia's has wonderful,  truly authentic, family-style Southern food and is one of THE places to go if you are from around these parts.  I only found out about it because my SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now) Board meetings are held there once of month.  See, our board is half from Statesville ...

A nearly 200 acre lake-front development is underway in Troutman in response to what the developers feel is a high demand for more reasonably priced waterfront lots. River Rock is located near Walnut Tree Rd and Lookout Shoals Dam Rd. The 160-home development has lot sizes starting at one acre and has a layout plan that focuses on a rural feel. Waterfront lots start at $179,000. Roadwork has already begun and construction should start within six months. This development follows on the heels of the establishment of the River Oaks development, a master planned residential community with both golf-focused and waterfront-focused areas, also on the northern end of the lake. Of course, as people move into the west Iredell and eastern Catawba county areas, retail and office spaces are sure to...

Troutman HistoryIn 1853, Mrs. Anne Troutman, a widow, moved with her family to a point in the forks of the Charlotte Road and the Perth Church Road and with her two sons, Jacob and Sidney. They built a home which no longer stands. The place had previously been known as Hickory Crossing. Here her sons built a shop and began making wagons and carriages.In the late 1850´s, when the railroad was being built from Charlotte to Statesville, a construction camp was established nearby by the railroad and the place became known to railroad people as "Troutman´s". Later it was to be Troutman.The railroad actually put Troutman on the map in addition to giving it a name. A depot was built at Troutman when the railroad was completed into Statesville and the mixed trains stopped here for passengers an...

The small Town of Troutman, NC which sits along the northeastern shore of Lake Norman has been discovered in a very big way.  As I mentioned in my previous article, where Crescent Homes goes so goes the focus of growth around Lake Norman.  In October of last year, Crescent Homes opened sales at their latest housing development, Falls Cove, a 900-home, high-end subdivision in Troutman.  Here's why:    Located just north of Mooresville along Lake Norman between exit 42 and 45 on the I-77, Troutman is considered to be a reasonable commuting distance to not just Charlotte but Greensboro and Winston Salem.  It truly is at the very center of our rapidly growing economic region.  Besides the numerous housing developments cropping up off Perth Road on up to Lake Norman State Park, there are sig...
