County agrees to terms on historic home relocation

Davidson County officials said they believe they have overcome a longstanding hurdle in the development of a 431-acre business park south of Belmont Road near I-85 in Linwood.

Voting unanimously Tuesday, the Davidson County Board of Commissioners agreed to transfer ownership of a historic home on the site of the future business park to the Historic Preservation Foundation of North Carolina. With the home, a 2.584-acre lot on the north side of Belmont Road previously owned by Beallgray Farm will also be turned over to PNC for its preservation and relocation.
