Small town living with convenient access to Charlotte is what makes Matthews so appealing.  The focal point of Matthews is its historic downtown where a number of turn-of-the-century buildings have been preserved and are now occupied by antiques shops and offices. Ten of these buildings were listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1996. Several desirable neighborhoods are within walking distance of downtown. 
A new Town Hall and Library, overlooking the Village Green with gazebo, opened in 2001. A commercial district with a nostalgic design flanks the entrance to the Village Green.  Matthews contains many shopping areas, most built since the late 1980s.  Matthews is about 20 minutes from three Charlotte malls. The town includes a hospital and a community college campus. While Matthews has excellent access to Charlotte's employment centers, the town itself is home to a number of business headquarters.
