Legacies and traditions

Seven Oaks Café is located in the John Davidson McLean House built in the 1850s. McLean and his father William McLean were the first doctors of Gaston County and this area of rich farm land known as The Point. The name Seven Oaks traces its roots back to the 1800s to the McLean family and a daughter of JDB McLean, a farmer, sheriff and area leader who noted seven majestic oak trees flanking her home.

The lands making up McLean, Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, and the Seven Oaks Preserve trails were all acquired by Daniel Stowe shortly before and after World War II. Here Stowe built his home along the water in what is now the South Shore community in addition to owning the Plantation House antiques store that operated from The McLean House. Like the McLean family, Stowe also farmed the land and held many a festive event hosting friends and neighbors.

We invite you to enjoy and celebrate Seven Oaks and the rich traditions and legacies of Stowe, the McLean and this picturesque land.
