Along one of Charlotte’s most popular walking trails is the Trail of History. The Trail of History is a collection of sculptures along Sugar Creek Greenway. Each sculpture is of a person who helped to shape the history of Charlotte.
This past weekend, a new sculpture was added to the Trail of History; Dr. Annie Lowrie Alexander. According to the CharlotteTrailOfHistory.com, Dr. Alexander was the first license female physician to practice in North Carolina in 1885. “Dr. Annie” opened doors for women in the medical field.
Her statue was unveiled on the Sugar Creek Greenway this past weekend. You can now see it next time you are on a walk or bike ride. You should really check out the entire Trail of History, but Dr. Annie’s statue is located near the intersection of Elizabeth and Kings Drive on Little Sugar Creek Greenway.
