When the Civil War ended, Charlotte's population was around 5,000. Today, over 650,000 people live there. In the space of 150 years, the town moved from being a farming area to an industrial one and then to a modern financial center. Adams describes three places that give visitors a feel for Charlotte's past: the Levine Museum of the New South, Mert's Heart and Soul Restaurant, and the Mint Museum of Craft + Design.
