PRESERVATION NORTH CAROLINA COVID-19 POLICY:
To ensure the health and safety of Preservation North Carolina staff, interested buyers, volunteers and the public, face coverings such as masks are required to be worn — and social distancing observed — during property showings and other interactions. The face covering should completely cover the nose and mouth. Onsite property showings will be to qualified buyers only. We appreciate your cooperation.
PLEASE NOTE: Our Eastern Regional Office has a new phone number – 252-563-5288 – due to our relocation from Greenville to Tarboro.
At Preservation North Carolina we rescue old houses.
And factory mills, schools, churches, general stores, and even the occasional big pink puppy.
We’re fondly referred to as “the animal shelter for old houses.” It’s a fun nickname, but a responsibility we take to heart. Through our nationally recognized and award-winning Endangered Properties Program we’ve rescued over 800 old, interesting, historic, sometimes abandoned, but always important properties. There’s a story behind each one and we are committed to telling it.
But we don’t do it alone.
We rely on the generous support of our members, so please look through our site to learn more about the groundbreaking work that we do, and consider joining the 4,500 members who support Preservation NC!Donate

If you’ve ever been interested in easements or how you can preserve your own property, join us!
Wilmington’s Lie: the Murderous Coup of 1898 and the Rise of White Supremacy Discussion with David Zucchino
Pulitzer Prize winning journalist David Zucchino tells the story of intimidation and violence, stuffed ballot boxes, and armed men who killed at least 60 black men in the streets. It was not a “race riot” it was, in fact, an armed coup d’état by white supremacists intent on reclaiming power. The discussion is moderated by journalist, author, broadcaster and arts leader, Rhonda Bellamy.
