In 1774, Hezekiah Alexander built what generations of Charlotteans knew as the 'Old Rock House'. Alexander, who was a lawyer by trade, was a signer of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence in 1775, an elected member of North Carolina's provincial Congress in 1776, and one of the founders of Queen's College in Charlotte. In an effort to restore the Alexander Home and open it as a museum, a group of Charlotte's leading citizens have formed the Hezekiah Alexander Foundation.
