Charlotte, NC (WSOC/CNN) - Rumors are swirling that "The Bachelorette" is being filmed in a Charlotte, North Carolina neighborhood.

There are several indications, including the fact that the new star, Emily Maynard, is from Charlotte.

Evermay is a private, gated community off Marvin Road in Ballantyne. From the street, it's quiet. We saw some tents and workers building things, but from Chopper Nine you can see the massive effort involved at the south Charlotte mansion with trucks and heavy equipment, light rigging, and camera booms outside.

Now, ABC won't confirm that The Bachelorette is being filmed here, but people who live just yards away in the Cedarwalk townhomes think they know.

The owner of a local bagel shop says he's been feeding what he believes are crew for the show.

A lot of the neighbors are just a few yards away from the home and say they haven't heard a lot of noise, but what they have noticed is the trees in the back yard are lit up every night.

While not confirmed, many hope it's true. It could shine a spotlight on Charlotte for the world to see.
