Wahaw Home Inspection and News

During Union County's 1990s growth spurt, Waxhaw gained more than 1,300 residents, a 103 percent jump. Today the small town counts nearly 2,900 people.
Most people come to this quaint area of south Union County near the South Car­olina border for the antiques. More than 18 antiques shops are open just about every day year-round, and more are open on weekends, If you tire of looking for treas­ures, consider some of the other sites. Six miles to the east is the Mexico-Cardenas Museum at JAARS (Jungle Aviation and Radio Service). It honors Lazaro Cardenas, Mexico's former president, who was a close associate of JAARS founder Cameron Townsend. The museum offers a glimpse into the work of this unique world organization that has about 250 specialists translating the Bible into languages all over the world. Or you might head to Cane Creek Park, a 1,000-acre recreation facility surrounding a large lake. It offers camping, boating, fishing, and picnicking. The Andrew Jackson Museum has a large dis­play of historic artifacts. An annual military reenactment is staged with the museum's assistance.
Some folks take regular trips to Wax-haw to eat lunch at the Bridge and Rail Restaurant, 112 East South Main Street. If you like country food, this is the place to visit. The helpings are large, and the atmosphere with photographs of Wax-haw's past highlights this historic setting.
A number of special events are also worth a visit: the Downtown Waxhaw Antique Festival, held each Memorial Day weekend; Listen and Remember, an outdoor drama that tells the story of President Andrew Jackson and the Waxhaw Native Americans, performed each weekend in June; and the Waxhaw Scottish Highland Games in Cane Creek Park in October, fea­turing bagpipes and traditional Scottish competitions. Be sure to wear your plaid!

One of the area's newer annual events is the Queen's Cup Charlotte Steeplechase, an all-day affair that features horse races, equestrian events, a lawn tailgate party, and a hat parade. In recent years more than 25,000 people have attended the April steeplechase on a farm just outside of downtown Waxhaw.
