CHARLES WEARN CONNELLY, AIA (1906-1967)

Connelly graduated from NCSU with a BS in Architectural Engineering in 1929.  He was a detailer for Southern Engineering Company from 1930-31 and worked for Newport News Shipbuilding from 1931-1932.  Starting in 1934, he opened his own design firm in Charlotte. Later he partnered with others to form Connelly Winecoff Cooley.  Connelly was a drummer and played regularly with the opera and the Charlotte Symphony.  He also was an avid golfer.

Other projects included the Gastonia Country Club, Sardis Presbyterian Church, South Mecklenberg High School, and the Charlotte Observer Transportation Company, the Quail Hollow Country Club, the Myers Park Country Club, the Carmel Country Club, Park Road Baptist Church, Cotswold Shopping Center (destroyed to build a Publix), and was a consultant to design most of the Foxcroft development, according to his daughter-in-law Connie Roper.
