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, and Cooley.
Other projects included the Gastonia Country Club, Sardis Presbyterian Church, South Mecklenberg High School, and the Charlotte Observer Transportation Company.

1937 - The L.H. Harris House
1952 - The Frederic (Fred) L. Marietta M. Smyre Jr. House, 1101 Robinwood Road, Gastonia NC. Commissioned 1950. Radiant floors. Transferred in 1993 to Robinwood LTD. Deeded in 1999 to his son Frederick (Rick) Smyre III. Sold in 2005 to Pricscilla A. and Frederic L. Smyre III. Although the house was definitely designed by Connelly, Rick Smyre remembers many conversations between his parents and A. G. Odell. It is possible that Odell referred this project out to Connelly. For sale in 2015.
1953 - The George and Eleanor Sinnicks House, 3524 Seward Place, Charlotte. Sold in 2011 to Douglas and Kaitlin Rose.
1954 - The John T. Bayne Residence, 3763 Wendwood, Charlotte. Destroyed around 2006.
