A PLACE TO grow roots
Stumptown Station is a local neighborhood private club that serves liquor.
We strive to provide quality service, amazing atmosphere and spirits sourced locally in North Carolina. We want our members to enjoy conversation while being able to watch streaming media or listening to live music on weekends.
Stumptown station is a 1500 square foot brownstone which has two levels. We wanted to make sure we kept the spaces character and a simple style. We feel this theme adds value to the downtown Matthews space.

Why the name Stumptown?
Nestled between Charlotte and Monroe, the area now known as Matthews was unspoiled rolling woodlands with large stands of trees. By the early 1800s, this rich and inviting land attracted our early settlers, who were mainly farmers. In the vicinity lay the trading trails, game-rich hunting grounds and the ancestral homes of the Waxhaw and Catawba Indians. These farmers began clearing the land for planting around the start of the 19th century. Cotton grew well and soon became the primary cash crop. As the land was cleared for planting, so many tree stumps were left standing that the early settlement was unofficially known as Stumptown.
