PRESERVATION NORTH CAROLINA PROPERTY SHOWING POLICY:
Onsite property showings will be to qualified buyers only. We appreciate your cooperation.
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 nearly 900 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

Buying Time for Heritage
What does it take to save endangered historic properties? This practical guide builds on decades of historic preservation experience to provide readers with legal, financial, political, and technical tools and strategies to be more effective preservationists. Myrick Howard makes clear that large sums of money are not necessarily needed to save endangered historic properties, but knowledge and passion are essential.
Night of Lights
This annual event allows visitors to experience the Mansion decked out for the holidays! You’ll go through the 3 main levels of the house and the first level of the original slave quarters building. Volunteers in each room give visitors a brief explanation of the space, and the tour follows a specific path.
