The labor force employed on Alexander's farm was largely comprised of black tenant farmers whose small frame homes crumbled long ao. In the early twentieth century, however, the homes of these black families surely stood in stark contrast to the imposing, meticulously detailed and delicately featured Alexander house, with its sweeping, wrap-around porches. When Alexander died in 1926, the cotton boom in Charlotte was at the cusp of decline. Even as Neal Alexander's son, Nathaniel, took over farm operations in the wake of his father's death, the farm lasted only through the 1930s. The 1,000 acres were sold off, leaving a four acre lot upon which the Alexander house still sits today.
Even after the cotton farm became a thing of the past, Nathaniel and his wife lived in the home until his death in 1968. Today, the home is still under Alexander family ownership, and in 2008 the family completed a massive restoration to bring the home back to its former Victorian glory. Currently, the house is operated as the Alexander Homestead Wedding Venue.
