Welcome To
The Steele Creek Historical and Genealogical Society Page
Of the Old Steele Creek Township
Mecklenburg County, North Carolina


Thanks for visiting.  We are providing a lot of genealogical and historical information about our community that encompasses a significant area of the southwestern portion of Mecklenburg County, North Carolina.  Information that, we hope, will help all folks having roots here make long sought after connections to their family history.  All data posted here has been contributed by our members and supporters and most has previously appeared in issues of Gleanings, our quarterly newsletter.  So, please come back often, and feel free to submit your stories about Steele Creek.
