Tryon Street

Tryon Street is a major north-south street of Charlotte, North Carolina. It traverses through the center of Uptown Charlotte and is the address for some of the city's tallest buildings like the Bank of America Corporate Center and Hearst Tower. U.S. Route 29 and North Carolina Highway 49 are signed along portions of Tryon Street (although they both deviate onto Graham Street through Uptown). The road is divided at its intersection with Trade Street into two segments: North Tryon Street and South Tryon Street. Likewise, Tryon Street divides Trade Street into East and West. The Trade and Tryon intersection is the highest point in Mecklenburg County and serves as the dividing point for the city's first four wards. The street was named after William Tryon, governor of the Province of North Carolina from 1765 to 1771.
