In the meantime, so that we can continue to connect with you, we’re launching our virtual “Shelter Series”

Preservation North Carolina Presents: The Shelter Series — Virtual Programming Series about Places That Matter

We fondly refer to PNC as “the animal shelter for old houses.” It’s a fun nickname, but a responsibility we take to heart. Right now, “shelter” has taken on so many important meanings. At its core, we believe “shelter” remains what it’s always been – a place that provides cover and protection.

Our work is focused on the houses, buildings, churches, schools, and mills that have provided cover and protection for generations of North Carolinians. During this time when “sheltering” has become central to our lives, we want to explore with you the culture, architecture, diversity and stories of the many shelters across our state.

We hope you’ll join us as we provide some fun, distraction, cover and comfort. Come virtually “Shelter” with us! Stay tuned here for upcoming “Shelter Series” events!
