Martin E. Boyer, Jr., architect
Charlotte, Mecklenburg County
2750 Randolph Rd., Charlotte, NC
When the old United States Mint (designed by Philadelphia architect William Strickland and built in 1837 on West Trade St. in Charlotte), was demolished to make way for an expansion of the post office facility, architect Boyer was instrumental in rescuing the materials and rebuilding it as a city art museum in a suburban location. Continuing in that use, it has been expanded over the years.
