Preservation North Carolina moves in downtown
A new regional office for Preservation North Carolina recently opened in downtown Greenville, and its new director is already busy on the job.
The old office that served the northeastern region of North Carolina was located in Edenton, and its director of 18 years recently retired.
Preservation North Carolina then decided to expand the office to become the Eastern Regional Office and move it to Greenville. It will serve to find, protect and preserve historic properties, including homes and commercial buildings, in 31 counties in eastern North Carolina.
Some of the buildings have been on the verge of being demolished, and Preservation NC has been able to step in and save them.
